Vinegar for weeds

Because of the value of some of the things I grow I would prefer not to  
publish a list. I know a plant breeder who went shopping, came home and was  
missing some unique plants that were not recovered. One plant I am very fond 
of  is an Operculicarya decaryi bonsai tree growing in a rock about 2 and a 
half  feet tall. It is a desert tree that dwarfs easily with knarled, nobby 
bark. It  is around 50 years old now. A favorite bulbous plant would be 
Paramongaia  weberbaueri. It is an amaryllid from S American with yellow 
flowers. My Late  partner was also a plant lover and he wanted me to grow as many 
seed plants as  possible. So right now I just have several hundred species 
growing from  seeds. But I hope to continue growing for a while yet-Russ H.

I can think of  plenty of unobtainable plants.

Russ, what rare plants do you  grow?
