I think a few of them were far enough along that they may show up 
commercially in time.

As far as all of the plants in his greenhouse at the time of his death 
... his family took a few of his personal plants, as did his grad 
students. Several of us in the area, including a representative of our 
small local botanic garden, tried to get permission to preserve some 
things, but I was told by a reliable source that everything else was 
trashed. I'll check his trial plots again in the spring, but last summer 
the only Polianthes/Manfreda/Agave I saw were in the greenhouse, and 
everything in there was suffering from severe neglect.
