WANTED: Old-fashioned Milk and Wine Lillies

I would like some of the old-fashioned crinum lillies that grow around old homesteads/cemeteries. They must be so common that nurseries don't carry them. I am willing to pay for shipping or can trade for Martha Gonzales rose cuttings I've rooted.

I don't know how far you are from North Texas (Denton area to be exact), but I know there are a number of people in this area who were looking for that particular crinum. They are gorgeous, and I love mine..........this year it should be multiplying.

gen6tx, It's a little late, but if you have not found your Milk and Wine crim's, let me know. I have some that grew in my mother-in-law's yard for over 10 yrs with absolutely NO intervention of any kind. I would LOVE some Martha Gonzales.
If still interested, shoot me an email.
