I think it is at

> listMarts(host="plants.ensembl.org")
            biomart              version
1       plants_mart           Plant Mart
2 plants_variations Plant Variation Mart

Previously, the default host was biomart.org which served to federate many different marts. biomart.org is currently unavailable and the host has been changed to ensembl.org. I arrived at plants.ensembl.org by surfing the web for "ensembl plant mart" and looking at the url; not very sophisticated.

Thank you very much , now, I think, I must change several scripts with the plants.ensembl.org host. You saved my day.
