We are looking for donations to the upcoming ABS plant auction.Because of the early date of the ABS conference the Online auction will start on August 26th and end on September 6th. The live auction will be at the Huntington in Pasadena California on September 13th.

This year you can donate plants and request that the auction be On-Line only so when the On-line auction is over the winner and donor will know who get the plant. For regular auction plants They will start on the On-line auction and I will act as a proxy for the High bidder at the live auction.

This year we will have a number of new imports from China so it will be an opertunity to get a rare plant.

More information is on the auction website at absauction.bambooweb.info and donor information is at http://absauction.bambooweb.info/viewfaqs.php?cat=2

Please contact me if you have plants to donate.

Thanks,
Bill

The "on-line only" option is great! Nothing worse than "winning" then losing later. :(

Only 2 days left to get a bid in on the rare plants. Most only have one other division in the US.

Sounds good Bill -- how does this total compare to previous years' auctions? Are you satisfied with the dollar total? (There was much rare stuff this time)

The results were real good this year with a lot of bidding. The two F. 'Black Culm' plants went for great prices both surpassing the plant in last years auction.
In total all of the plant auctions brought in $3405 and the silent auction brought in $1221 for a total of $4626.
Last year the plants brought in $1970 and the silent auction about $1700.

The auction lasted a long time this year because a number of the imported plants were misidentified. They finally went with calling some of them a nice new plant from China that when it grows to adult size we should be able to identify.
