Plant geeks are invited to attend the Exceptional Plants: Lotusland Auction & Sale on Saturday in Montecito.
Asstistant Curator Paul Mills said there will be some rare and hard-to-find plants on the auction block.
Some of the plants were propagated at the botanical garden created by Ganna Walska.
Bids are likely to reach thousands of dollars.
The money raised will help help preserve the historic Lotusland and its conservation and horticulture programs.
