I think I saw a documentary about this, or something similar. Is the artist Chihuly? (I'm sure the spelling is wrong). Truly amazing as are all of your photographs. What a tremendous resource.

I'm not positive but the artist chihuly (something like that) does ring a bell...inside the Climatron is a display of same artist's glass flowers. Mobot has more glass works (assuming same artist) This is entrance/exit to the rose garden.

There are 3 aligned lily ponds in front of the Climatron; in one float these tapered glass sphereicals -

Cool! You're the first northerner I've seen post growing Crinum. Do you grow it in a pot? I've got one that I received in a bulb swap a couple of years ago. It's in a pot with other plants that goes in the unheated plant room for winter and back to the deck in summer. It was small when I planted it, but is maturing nicely. I didn't know if there would be a chance of my seeing it bloom- I'd never heard of anyone growing them in containers.

jmorth, your Lycoris are gorgeous. Do you know the ID of your crinum?

Neal, I will be the second northerner poster growing crinums. Smiling

Do you grow it as a perennial sgardener? Plantfiles lists it as z6b but we know how conservative they can be.

No, I don't. I grow them in containers. I wanted to experiment but never get around to doing it. Maybe I will try with the one that offsets like crazy. Plant it deep and see if it will survive the winter here.

I am looking for Amarine bulbs. Does anybody knows a source?

How many varieties do you grow? I've never looked very closely at Crinums, thinking I couldn't grow them, but now my interest is piqued! I love experimenting with zone pushing too.
