Many times the plant shop at Selby buys plants from other growers to sell in
their shop and these are often not labeled. They do also sell plants that are
propagated by division or seed from the collections. You can call the Selby
Plant shop (try to reach either Linda Hoover, plant shop manager, or Bob
Stickney, shop assistant) at (941) 366-5731 ext. 242. They may be able to
tell you what was in the shop during the last week or two but if it was
longer ago than that they may not know. I once worked in the shop and people
would send me photos of the plants they purchased years ago and ask me to
identify them! Not too easy a task with the Pachyneuriums, some of which are
very similar and not readily identified by even an expert unless the origin
(original collection locality from the wild) is known. There are so many
hybrids in cultivation that even a specialist would not be able to tell you
the identity if the plant came from some commercial source without
trustworthy locality data.
