new thread

canna queen nursery near austin, texas is going out of business. i talked with the owner today. she has bulbs out the wazoo for sale. lycoris, rain lilies, copper lilies, amaryllis and belladonna. she says she has red, pink, white and yellow lycoris......500 bulbs at least on each. on the rain lilies she has all colors plus copper lilies and prairie sunset specifically. she says she has "over 70 colors on amaryllis" and pink, white and red belladonna lilies. she has 90 days before she has to leave her site.


i might try to get her down on all of these bulbs once i see what we might want but for now prices are as stated below.


lycoris........priced at 3.00 bulb.........red, yellow, pink and white. we can get the red cheaper elsewhere but i think it's a good price on the rest.

rain lilies 35 cents a bulb...........you would order by color or you could order prairie sunset or the copper lilies by name. colors are pink, white, yellow, orange and peach.

amaryllis belladonna ..........if we buy 100 she would sell them for 2.50 each. you would order pink, white or red.

amaryllis...........priced at 3.50 bulb..........she says she has about 100 cybisters left in the mix. you would order red, pink, white, bicolor, green, yellow, maroon, magenta, hot pink, light pink, salmon, cherry red, blood red, orange or cybister. i can't think of 70 colors myself. lol. the amaryllis are in the ground and they bloomed this spring. they vary from apricot size up to grapefruit size. you won't know what size. you get what you get.

canna...........75 cents each........you would order with these colors........
yellow, pink, red, orange, salmon, magenta, burnt orange, and these speckled varities....
yellow and orange, pink and yellow, red and yellow

i understand from her that all bulbs are separated into colors. she says her nursery was rated number 1 in the austin area in the last few years. i found her on craig's list and obviously i don't know her or her reputation. i googled her nursery and that's all i could do.
that's all the info i have. in essence we buy sight unseen and we get what we get.

if we order these i would be receiving them in the next week or so. she will ship to me in flat rate boxes so we'd all share that cost and then of course postage on to you.

there is a 2.00 order fee for this sale plus i will charge 5% of your total to pack and ship. that means if you spend 10.00 your total in fees would be 2.50. if your total is 50.00 your total in fees would be 4.50.

I have this theory that chocolate slows down the aging process.... It may not be true, but do I dare take the chance?

payment will be due now. however...........if you are a regular customer here please contact susan and make payment arrangements and it will be fine with me if you wait till after the first of the year.

anyone needing to wait on shipment..............well............i can pot them and send them in the spring but i make no guarantees as they will be outside in a pot. which should be fine here but i still make no guarantees. i will put your name on them but I INSIST that you remind me in the spring that i am holding your plants.

freezing in the mail...........i don't know. i can wrap them with layers of newspaper but that's all i have to use. i can hold amaryllis as well. same guarantee as above......which is no guarantee. and you have to remind me in the spring that i have your plants.

I hate to make you go through all that trouble. As much as I wanted to try a few cannas this year, I should hold off. The temps are going down into the teens and it isn't going to let up soon.
