Quoting:I think I have everyone on the hellebore, amaryllis and eucomis spreadsheets totaled up. You are either pinked (ready to pay) greened (paid) or oranged (total combined and put on another spreadsheet, usually eucomis. I know everyone will be confused again, but think how I feel. :((
this applies to everyone but critterologist and aspenhill (because she is shipping to critter) I still have some work to do on their totals. LOL

24 inches. August/September Bloom.
Hardy to USDA Zone 6 to 7 with an insulating mulch or lift bulbs to store in a frost-free location.


one note on the mini wont' find these anywhere in the u.s. yet i don't think. this is their trial year and are the creation of the new zealand hybridizer eddie welsh. i have one week ....ONE say yay or nay on these. money won't be due till jan. and talk to susan if you need to but i have to know in one week if we want these or not. so if you have specific questions lmk because we can get info straight from mr. welsh if we need to.

Eucomis are hardy to around 5 degrees. Some of these will grow in zone 6b with mulch but mostly they need zone 7 or higher. However there is one dg'er in zone 6 that says she grows them without mulch or anything special. also note that some appear to be more hardy than others to cold so lmk if you don't find that info.

Bulbs/tubers can be either grown in pots in colder regions or dug in the fall and stored in a frost free location. Winter wetness is to be avoided so they need excellent drainage. And use low nitrogen fertilizer. One source recommended cactus fertilizer (5-10-5).

What i like about these is their long flowering time. In the garden they open over a 4 week period and will last 4 to 8 weeks as cut flowers. They need full sun but can take some shade. Too much shade will weaken stems and colors will be not be as vibrant. But one guy i found loved the look of shaded eucomis. the flower stems were elongated and twisted and he liked that look for cut flowers. The hotter you are the more shade they can tolerate as always.

Eddie Welsh says the dwarf eucomis will bloom about 12 weeks after planting if you plant in feb., 8 wks if in march and so on. the longer they are stored the sooner they'll bloom once you do plant them as the flower is formed while dormant. does that make sense to yall?

Standard size eucomis bloom in august/sept. in the garden. it may be that once planted the minis and the standards will all bloom at the same time but potted ones are blooming earlier. this year trials are being conducted in actual growing conditions so information will be more meaningful in years to come on the minis. Each bulb/tuber will produce one bloom so multiple plantings are recommended on all eucomis.

if you have questions ask away. i hate starting this this close to Christmas but the company wants to know by year's end where their orders are going. and if it had not been a bulb/tuber that isn't even in production yet i wouldn't have.

you don't have to pay now but i do need to know who would buy these. After we order these no cancellations will be allowed so keep that in mind when you order.

half payment along with order fee will be due by mid. jan. the rest of the payment to be paid at least by mid feb. you got that susan?

the way this will go is if i determine we have bought enough i will order and keep the sale open as long as we need to.

but i am not going to order at all if we can't reach sufficient numbers. we have to buy hundreds of each of the minis. there are only going to be about 5000 of each of the minis available to the whole business this year. and i understand that about half to 2/3 have been sold already.

on the standard eucomis we only have to buy 40 or so.

it is going to be tue. at least before i can clear up the sparkling burgundy/rosie question. i think what we have is rosie which is eddie welsh's creation............reported to have much better flowers than burgundy but not the nice red foliage.
think we can get both though but will know more a little later this week.
