I went. It was a nice show. The sale was pretty awesome too.












I just wish I'd taken more pictures...

Here's what I got at the sale...


According to the tag, this is "S. ellipina ex HBG 61167 Fr. Horwood cross w/ S. robusta"


Bursera microphylla...with a few dorstenia seedlings.


Abromeitiella brevifolia


Gasteria "Rumplestiltskin"


Aloe harlana


This one didn't have a tag, but I'm thinking it's Titanopsis calcarea.

Thanks for sharing the pictures. The P. Afra looks like it's 100 years old.
Kbro15, That Bursera looks nice! If you don't mind me asking, what did that cost?
What other decent shows are in the Mid West?

That awesome Bursera was only $15! I couldn't pass it up...lol. That particular one was sold by a Henry Shaw C & S member. There was all kinds of interesting stuff to choose from. It was really easy to get carried away...

I don't know what other shows are in the Midwest. That's the only one I've ever been to. Does anyone know of any in the South?

I believe your Aloe harlana is actually A. hemmingii.

Thanks Christopher! I think you're right. They look extremely similar.
