Oh look, some tiny tillandsias for the trees. Hmm.
Fun idea for rain chain display!
This echiveria could be a plant, a pet or both!
"Down Under" pots. What do you think of these?
Most of the huge table of epiphyllum had bloomed but some were still going at it. It's hard to resist the beauty of these sweathearts in bloom!
As Loree says, if you seek it, there will always be an agave. (or several!)
Agave americana marginata
Always happy to see Agave parryi but this is the first time I've seen a Monrovia/ Proven Winners pot even though they teamed up in 2010.
Agave 'Kissho Kan' While I love agaves in the ground in California, I think I'm starting to prefer the ones that I bring inside for the winter. They require virtually no care, grow well, and look pristine compared to their pals roughing it outside.
Even more agaves!
A Brugmansia 'Miner's Claim' that looks this good at this time of the year is a sign of a gardener with great skill!
Because we visited in the middle of one of our freezes, much of the inventory that would usually be outside was under cover. I was welcome to check it out but decided to see what was toughing it out in the cold instead. Here's a 'Chief Joseph' lodgepole pine in a two gallon pot for only $109.00, the least expensive I've seen one of these of this size. Really, I went back and looked at the tag several times. If you were thinking of getting one, now might be a good time. I'd be happy to pick it up for you if you want it but can't get to the nursery!
Here's what we came to see. When the sun hits these amber spheres, this piece seems to glow from within!
Here's one of Denny King's spheres, this one painted bright red. What's not to love?
Judi believes that these are best displayed in a large pot with low growing ground cover, especially sedum/sempervivum. I think they look great in the landscape as well!
Loving the allium color of this one.
Truly fun work and very low prices! Portlanders, I'd be happy bring anything you may need to own to you at the Yard, Garden, and Patio Show!
Only 28 days until spring. We're going to make it!
