Though it's obviously not a nursery per se, the University of Calif.
Botanical Garden/ Berkeley is coincidentally having their annual
Spring Plant Sale on Saturday, April 26 from 10a to 2p. And the
member's-only advance sale is Friday April 25 from 5p to 7:30p
should you wish to get first crack at things by joining at the gate.
Truth be told I have no idea what will be offered from the realm
of Araceae at this sale. If anything... likely some Mediterranean
genera; possibly some Ariseama spp. and/or Amorpho. titanum
seed as a result of the garden's recent blooming/ pollination (?).
Do keep in mind the clime over here: we rarely see freezing temps
but we also rarely see 90º F/ 32º C by the coast. Which is to say
our conditions are rather mild & band-limited all year long, tending
towards the cooler end of things. This of course influences what
is commercially or otherwise grown...
Regardless the garden is not to be missed and I humbly submit
that any bona fide plant person will find -something- at a UCBG
plant sale they need to own. Perhaps some stunning Lapageria
cultivars for your cloud forest garden in Metro-Manilla? : )
Enjoy your trip to the Bay Area, and if there's anything I can do
to assist you while here, please don't hesitate to contact me off-list.
