Neither of them were bought. Most of them were acquired from various locations/friends over the years. There is one variety acquired from India whose pictures i have lost whose flower size is even bigger. A very rare Iranian variety was uprooted accidently in my absence.

Let me know which ones do you fancy except the white one in which i only have 1 rhizome. I'll send you the rhizomes.

Does TCS permit dispatch of rhizomes?
