Patty, the owner of Bayou City Heirloom Bulbs, is still in business. She has had issues with her website but has many, many fine, personally propagated plants to offer. I recently met her and toured her gardens and was quite impressed with her knowledge and love for all things growing. You can call her at 713-471-4383, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I know she will accommodate you if she can.

As of this morning, I find the website for this vendor to no longer be active.
I ordered three Hippeastrum x johnsonii. Patty hand selected and shipped FOUR bulbs with bloom stalks because she got them out a couple of days later than she said she would. The slight shipping delay presented no problem with me at all to begin with and the extra bulb was not expected but appreciated nonetheless.
Got the plants today and they are superb. As noted in another review, great personal customer service. Highly recommended.
I was looking for some harder to find bulbs and stumbled on Bayou City Heirloom Bulbs. The selection of bulbs is excellent, the prices seem reasonaable, but best of all the customer service cannot be beat. Patty is a pleasure to deal with. I'll be a return customer.
