Silverhill Seeds
Cape Town, South Africa
This is the best source for African seeds that I know of. An incredible range that changes continuously as different seeds become available. Many of my South African bulbs came from their seed. They carry tree and shrub seed as well as succulents and lots of other things.

The Bulb Society
An excellent and informative site. Contains cultural information as well as an impressive and growing library of bulb photos. The society offers a printed journal, "Herbertia", which has both amateur and technical information.

Paul Christian's
An impressive source for both bulbs and information. They have a large range of geophytes, including various temperate and mediterranean climate bulbs. Lots of other things including temperate aroids and terrestrial orchids.

Jim Duggan Flower Nursery

There are not too many places selling a good selection of South African bulbs, but this is one of the few. Mostly Irids, but beginning to offer a few other types of bulbs.

Jungle Music
San Diego, CA
Proprietor Phil Bergman offers a lot of cycads and palms, from seedling sizes to large specimens.

Arid Lands
Tucson, AZ
Succulent plants.

Rare Plant Research
Another succulent specialty house. Lots of interesting stuff, including many unusual caudiciforms. Sell mostly seedlings and cuttings, but some have been grown on to appreciable size.

The Cactus and Succulent Plant Mall
Not just for cactophiles, this is a sort of super-site with links to many very interesting sites.
