    Does anyone have a clue as to where I can get Satin Flower (Olsynium douglassii) bulbs. These little flowers grow in the San Juan Islands, but sparsly. The deer love them and chomp them up as soon as they bloom. This makes finding them and spreading the bulbs difficult.

    There has been a group of people in the San Juans trying to get rid of the imports and re-establish the original native plants and grasses for ages. Over many years visitors to the our Islands have brought many undesirable plants and animals they think we need. I thought maybe someone out there might have some ideas or sources for us to explore for these plants. Thanks in advance for any help. barb
