Haven't posted in a while (been a bit busy) but I was wondering if anyone can help me in locating Santana. I have been looking for a while but no luck. Any help would be appreciated.
Warm Regards and Thanks,
Somebody in New York used to still have this...can't remember her name.
Emaryllis is where I found it but would they know who still sells it?
I just bought something from Arghya Gardens and was perusing through their amaryllis gallery and there is a to- die-for picture of your Santana. Maybe you could email them and see how old you'll be when they have one available;-)
I bought a papilio from their Doran collection and it came very healthy with leaves and good roots. So if my one purchase is any any indication of the quality of the plants they send, I would recommend them.
That's what I just bought too!!! They only had 3....
Not sure if it will be noticibly different than my other papilios but I saw it in a weak moment and well..you know the rest!
If I do that I'll have even less hair and a few less teeth as well..lol
Fred, I hope you find your Santana. Although it's always nice to have a holy grail to keep looking for - keeps life interesting :)
Donna, I found that this papilio grows better for me in sphagnum moss in a net pot than in my usual potting mix. Hopefully it will be fine in your mix, but in case you have the same experience....
Thanks for the encouragement and I will definitely keep looking. Not only am I Italian but I'm a stubborn Taurus as well...lol
