Hi, Dustin. 

In addition, may I urge you to read The Genus Calochortus by Mary Gerritsen and Ron Parsons. It will orient you to Calochortus far beyond the commercial clones, give you a sense of what you might naturalize in your conditions and is quite simply an intelligent and beautiful book.

Would you have any bulbs or seeds that you would be willing to share, or trade for something that we may have in Oklahoma? If not, do you know of any other sources that could help us? Below are some specific kinds we are looking for, but would also be open to anything else you are willing to share.
