Shameless Plug for SacredSucculents Auction
« on: December 12, 2021, 01:17:15 PM »
Hey All-

Full clarity I am not affiliated with this in any way but I think Ben and his family run an amazing nursery with good prices and insane diversity.

They are having an auction at the website below-
http://sacredsucculents.com/

You need to scroll about halfway down the page to see it-

A few highlights people here might be interested in-

Ochagavia elegans “Ajo Dulcie”

Bromeliaceae. Handsome small rosettes of green to silvery pointed leaves. Compact cluster of dark pink flowers in the center of the rosette followed by sweet edible fruit that looks like a garlic bulb, hence the local name “ajo dulcie”. This pineapple relative is endemic solely to Robinson Crusoe Island. Here it forms large dense colonies on rocks and sheer cliff faces. An awesome rarity that will make a unique edible ornamental for the adventurous grower. Only offering this year. Z9b?
12″+ plant with 3 heads, 9+ years old – Minimum bid $60*

Ceratostema amplexicaule

Ericaceae. Terrestrial to epiphytic shrub 5–10’+ tall. Attractive coriaceus amplexicaul leaves hug the stems. Large clusters of thick flowers of brick red with blue-black recurved petals. Dark blue black edible berries. A rare blueberry relative from the cloudforests of Columbia and Ecuador, 4000–10,000’+. Second time offered. Rooted cutting. Z9b?
14″+ plant – Minimum bid $65*

Macleania pentaptera X Macleania ??

Ericaceae. First offering of this open pollinated hybrid. M. pentaptera has caudiciform lignotubers, upright branches, dark green cordate leaves, clusters of orange tubular flowers with green and white tips, sweet white berries. The father was likely M. coccoloboides, M. cordifolia or M. insignis. Possibly our most interesting Macleania hybrid so far. Z9b/10a?
7″ plant with 1″ caudex 2–3 years old – Minimum bid $55*

Zizyphus mistol BK151015.7 cl. B “Sacha Mistol” “Andean Jujube”

Rhamnaceae. Small xerophytic tree 15–30′ tall. Thick contorted trunks of dense hard wood and smooth to rough green-brown bark. Zigzagging branches with small thorns and simple leaves, drought deciduous. Clusters of little yellow flowers that exhale a very sweet perfume. Date-like red-brown edible fruit. Dry forest of southern Salta, Argentina, 4500′. In antiquity it was one of the most important food plants of the southern Andean dry forests along with Algarrobo (Prosopis spp.) and Chanar (Geoffroa decorticans). All parts of the tree have many medicinal uses. A fine soap is made from the inner bark and dyes made from the bark and leaves. Should be very drought hardy. New to cultivation, we’ve only offered this a few times as rooted cuttings from our 3 different mother plants. Z9b?
10″+ branched plant – Minimum bid $45

Another Auction happening now!

may be the only chance to get one of these for bromeliad lovers

Ochagavia elegans “Ajo Dulcie”

Bromeliaceae. Handsome small rosettes of green to silvery pointed leaves. Compact cluster of dark pink flowers in the center of the rosette followed by sweet edible fruit that looks like a garlic bulb, hence the local name “ajo dulcie”. This pineapple relative is endemic solely to Robinson Crusoe Island, Chile. Here it forms large dense colonies on rocks and sheer cliff faces. An awesome rarity that will make a unique edible ornamental for the adventurous grower. We sold out of this coveted beauty several years ago and now offer a limited chance at a large cutting from our mother plants. Roots easily and quickly. Simple to grow, regular succulent care. Z9b?
16″+ long cutting with 12″+ diameter rosette – Minimum bid $65*

The last one sold for ~300 IIRC
