 THE MAEROWITZ COLLECTION

Saturday, April 27, 2019

9:00AM – 1:00PM

This collection is special in many ways.  First, it has been grown for about 30 years.  Second, there is a huge quantity of plant material.  Third, the variety of material is comparable to what you would expect to see in a public botanic garden.  Fourth there are some very rare species that you may never have seen before.  On top of that the size of the rare material is inspiring.  Some are larger than are available elsewhere in cultivation.  This collection includes palms, cycads, succulents, bamboo, and exotic trees.  There is also a very significant library of reference books, related to tropical and desert plants native to regions around the world, available for sale at very reasonable prices.

Plants are both in the ground and in pots.  There are a handful of plants marked with RED FLAGS.  These plants are NOT available.  Many of the large trees are easily accessible with a crane.  Digging dates will need to be arranged with the owner.

Identification of plants is made to the best of our ability.  Sizes and quantities are approximate, but also given to the best of our ability.  Photos are a representative portion of the collection.

If you have not already, please RSVP for the address to info@palmandcycadexchange.com.  The address will be emailed to those who reply on the Friday before the sale, Friday, April 26.

We accept cash, money order, cashier’s check, or approved check.  7.75% sales tax will be applied according to California law, unless a California resale permit is provided.

Please wear sturdy shoes, as the terrain is very rough and uneven.  A walking stick would be helpful, but is optional.

 

Please no early birds.  Gates will open at 9:00AM.
