Hallo



Perhaps you can help me. I am a private collector of Hippeastrums in Holland.

Now I am searching Toscane and Thai Thai .

Also other special ones have my interest such as Cybister ones  or Sonatini’s.

I also make my own crossings last year, very exciting.

Can you help me or do you know where I can get these Hippeastrums?

Further I am searching still very special Hippeastrum species, seeds or bulbs.

I have also a nice collection, perhaps we can exchange if you are interested.

Please let hear from you.



Thank you very much



Kind regards



Ton Wijnen

I recommend 3 sources:

www.EdensBlooms.com
www.RoyalColors.com
www.AfricanAmaryllis.com

Since you are from the Netherlands, it seems like Royal Colors would be easiest for you.

As far as the availability of the specific varieties you mentioned, time will tell.  We at EdensBlooms have tried to order Thai Thai several times.  So far, Hadeco hasn't filled the order.  AfricanAmaryllis is operated directly by Hadeco (or close affiliates) so they may offer it first.  One of these years we will succeed in getting it.

Since Toscane is a Cybister it was probably developed by Ludwig & Co.  Ludwig discontinued business last year (2010) and sold all their varieties to other growers.  2010 was a bust for Cybister varieties in general.  My agent in the Netherlands said more should be available in the fall of this year (2011), from the new growers.

I hope this information is helpful.

Tom,

  Soon i will have a couple of cybisters available to trade....I am not sure about trading out of the U.S.  What types of Hippeastrums do you have?  You can find a list of mine at www.joeandsandrashippies.blogspot.com
