Small, brown, shallot-like, the moraea loubseri is a rather unprepossessing little plant in its infant stage. But the obscure bulb managed to draw scores of plant lovers from throughout Southern California to the UC Irvine Arboretum on Saturday with the promise of an opportunity to own one of the rarest plants in the world.

The wonderful thing about an arboretum is that it looks different every time you visit. It's like a car that has a new paint job whenever you drive it. These days at the UC Irvine Arboretum, the Aloe reitzii has sprouted 6-inch-long orange and yellow flowers that look like parrots perched in the plant. The red flowers of the coral tree hang like bells, with seed pods that look like strands of pearls. The naked ladies -- yes, that's a plant -- display their pink and white trumpet flowers.

Charlie O'Neill planted the seeds seven years ago, carefully watering the tender shoots as they sprouted in hot-house pots at UC Irvine's arboretum. Now that the grove of nearly 30 endangered South African cedars has finally taken root on a sandy arboretum hillside, the slow-growing 3-foot saplings are targeted for removal. But it may as well be elimination, says O'Neill, because there is no other compatible soil on the 12-acre experimental garden and gene bank for rare and endangered plants.
