cattman(z10a FL)July 15, 2009

I'm looking to pare down my collection and get some rarer stuff!

What I have:

1 "Choquette" grafted avocado, at least 3 feet tall not including pot. Beautifully grown. Paid $40 for it, looking for a trade of similar value.

1 front division of Cattleya Atalanta "Meadow Mist" from Stewart's. Paid $200 for the parent division back around 1999-2000.

1 cattleya cross, BLC. Toshie Aoki "Pokai" x BLC. Marita "Golden Queen". Mature plant, 6-inch pot.

2 seedling Caesalpinia Mexicana (correctly Caesalpinia Yucatanensis, usually sold as "Mexican Poinciana"). Small seedlings a few months old.

1 Acacia Farnesiana, "Sweet Cassia", seedling about 5 feet tall. Drought-resistant like all acacias, fragrant flowers used in the perfume industry.

What I'm looking for:

Divisions of the following bananas: Kru, Red Iholene, Nino.

Some more unusual, attractive palms: Kerriodoxa, Licuala, Aiphanes, Johannesteijsmannia, Hydriastele, Calyptrocalyx

Odd trees: Cecropia, mangosteen, breadfruit, Marang (artocarpus odoratissima), rollinia.

I also have a row of 5 pale peach oleander shrubs - mature - in front of the lanai that I would like to give to a good home.

If you can find anyone willing to trade such rare palms for your stuff, which is nice and may have cost you a lot when you bought it, please let me know, I'd like to trade with them too. NOt trying to be sarcastic, but wow I'd like those palms too!
