Can anyone recommend a source for the unusual succulents? My son is looking for things like Trachyandra and other Albucas. I see where Logees has an Albuca 'Frizzle Sizzle' but are there other places you can recommend? Thanks.

Thanks, I'll let him wade through the offerings. I noticed a crassula he was interested in was offered from several foreign sources, Germany, Italy and Hungary. Any idea on how safe it is to order something like that from overseas?

Unfortunately the highlandsucculents.com is closed for 2016. But several of my Succulents came from this place some years ago. (My Pachypodium baronii and Adenium multiflorum 'Mombasa' and a couple others.)

Bob Smoley lists the second one but he is also out for the season.

The first is on Amazon.com

Thank You! Ursula, what great sites, you and my son would get along well. My DIL is very sweet to put up with his fish and plants.

Thanks Daisy, I get emails several times a week saying "Mom, where can I get one of these." LOL I guess he could have worse habits.

Daisy, I did not know Bob Smoley's was closed for the season. I just placed an order with them about two weeks ago and didn't hear anything from them. I know about Bob's passing. Very sad to loose a plants man.
Other places I buy from is 'Miles to Go', SMG Succulents and Mountain Crest.

Just thought of another great place and both your plants are listed:

No, Smoley's is not closed for the season, just out of that particular plant. I didn't know he had died. Sad

A huge thank you Daisy. My son will go broke when he sees all those choices. LOL

I went broke the first time I visited their website. Smiling The plants are never a disappointment. Not sure why I didn't think of them sooner.
