Thanks Tim,

	There are a couple of flaccidum hybrids : ‘Lil Stinker’ and possibly  ‘Southern Star’, but neither is very yellow… yet. If not pigment, but some physical feature in petal surface that is difficult to see why the color fades overnight. 

	I hear yellow flowered forms are difficult to grow, slow growing etc.  Seems like there would be a market for yellow Crinums and some one would be working on it. Curious. 

		Best		Jim
