Thanks for the welcome.
I have tried uploading pictures but it keeping rejecting my post with the messge upload folder is full.  I will send you a PM.   Most of the hippies have finished flowering.  We scatter the hybrids thru the rockeries and they are a sight when in bloom.  Most of these came from Maguires but we have not kept names.  I only keep the names of the species.
I grow a number of other bulbs particularly clivias along with anthuriums, alocasias, colocasias, lots of brugmansias, orchids and broms paricularly tillandsias.
The attached pictures are some that are still in bloom .

I find using Photobucket the easiest to load up photos

Use the IMG code from Photobucket

Current batch of papilio seed are all gone.
New pods in a couple of weeks.
Hybrids are still available.
