Credit authors Luis Hernandez-Sandoval and John P. Rebman. Credit Publisher: American Society of Plant Taxonomists. Credit Bioone. I will include sample duplicate images of the page in case the link ever goes down.

Thanks for the post. These species are seldom seen in cultivation. Once when I lived near San Diego, I tried to find Nolina interrata Gentry, near the TL (slope by Dehesa School), but as is typical for California chaparral, a recent fire prevented any discovery. It's one of the rarest plants found in our country.

This seller on eBay sells seedlings off and on. I’ve bought 3 at different points in time and tried different levels of light, moisture, etc. , but all 3 died soon after transplanting. I don’t think they can handle being bareroot for extended periods of time .

I'd wager those plants would have been in full flower the following year. Seems to be a trigger, for some at least.

Thanks for that link. I'm pretty sure these are grown by Dylan Hannon. I've known him for many years. He's had a knack for growing weird plants that no one else has any luck with. My longest living plants from him are 2 Fouquieria fasciculata, which are still in his original soil. I like the tag line from his email:

That’s a great quote.
