  1. O what a wonderful plant (last photo). Those flowers are really awesome, how i wish i can grow them here, or be able to be in those plant sales. Good for you for the plenty or resources like that.

  2. wow SF botanic gardens they have got lots of plants sales going on.It is so sad plants are not allowed to our country not even by logees. I love drought tolerant plants because of our extreme warm climate. Eucomis is not common at all here. But someone told me bulbs are available here they were not bicolor though.

  3. Oh, I just love botanical garden plant sales. Sadly, the one in SF is a little too far for me :^)
