Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS

Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS - Flower photo by Richard LindbergIn march I found two Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS (Cirrhopetalum longissimum x Cirrhopetalum rothschildianum) backbulbs that I had removed from the parent plant in the fall and had been sitting around on my desk completely dry for about 5 months. That seemed a little extreme for making a comeback, but I potted them in tightly packed sphagnum moss and put them in the wet zone in the Sonoma greenhouse.

I don't want to wait two years for it to bloom so here's the deal; I am giving the plant away free if you pay $5 shipping. Continental US only, and somebody who hasn't got one of these before. Post a comment saying you want it before 8pm PDT today, then go to this web page for my email address so we can work out the details. You will have it by the middle of next week.

  2. Dave, great! Email me and we will set it up. Use the address on the backbulb.com/about.asp page.

    If you did email me, do it again, I get a lot of mail and I have already deleted the "spam".
