    I would be very interested in your cactus and succulents. What agaves do you have?

    'Century' or 'blue" agave, whatever you'd like to call them mostly. Those I have all kinds of sizes of. I also have one type that is variegated very nicely with a yellow stripe down each leaf. Then I have some other unknown species that is slender, all green, and came from Canyon Lake, Tx. I dug those out of a relative's yard there.

    Just occurred to me that I have dragonfruit plants, that could be interesting.

    Are you planning on listing any of them in this auction? I would be interested in the blue agave and the one with the yellow stripe. Thanks

    Oh I understood your point, m'dear, and agree -- though in many cases it is akin to letting the horses out after the barn has already burned down. Twas merely presenting a common rebuttal that some folks subscribe to.

    Most bamboos should be considered noxious weeds considering how rampantly most spread via seeds and runners. Vinca and LotV were the two I assumed you were referring to. Amusingly enough, to me at any rate, I tried growing LotV once under a Maple at my folks' place .... They didn't make it. (The LotV that is, the folks were fine. )

    But, as Chib mentioned, few people are willing to diligently take those necessary steps -- and that's assuming they have taken the time to investigate a plant's possible invasiveness to begin with.
