I would like either or both of the Brownea. I have a dozen or more types of costus. A few that I think might be a little more unusual are Costus "Hot Lips" which is a tall 8' plus large variety with long lasting deep dark red cones that are quite large. Or maybe Costus dubious, which is a medium size with basal green cones with nice white flowers.
Zingiber, what about Zingiber zerumbet darcyii, variegated shampoo ginger? Also I have Zingiber rubens, Bengal ginger with basal flowers, a little less common one. Do any of these interest you? If not, I'll try again.


RE: HAVE: Brownea, Delonix

I am interested in the delonix elata. I have several delonix regia; but was not aware of the elata, until the last few days. I probably do not have anything to trade; but would like to see if you have any pictures of the delonix elata. There is one on the website If we can't trade; perhaps you would be interested in letting me purchase the elata.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
