Re: Crinum vs Nerine (off topic)

Nerienes generally bloom in late fall or early winter and then produce
their foliage, which dies out late in the spring (they behave like
Lycoris).  Hardiness is very variable; I've failed with them here in Z7 but
had them survive and bloom for a few years in Z5!  The best bet is pot
culture, treat them like Hippeastrum (Amaryllis) but keep the seasonal
aspect in mind.

Thompson and Morgan are selling yellow Clivia seedlings, 2 for $49.99.
Last year the price was around $35 for two seedlings, but all were sold out
by February.  Get your bid in early!  Clivias are easily raised from seed
so once your plants bloom, self-pollinate them and raise large numbers!
I've seen mature yellow Clivias offered for $300.

Best wishes, Bill
