The end of the Garden Bloggers' Fling in San Francisco, that is. On the final evening of the fling, there was a reception at Flora Grubb Gardens. Before we take one more fond look back at that incredible place, here's a garden within walking distance of the store that was designed by the Flora Grubb team. The garden is on a site which is popular with women of ill repute and their clientele. The plants in this garden needed to be able to withstand some horizontal activity. (Californication?) I'm thinking that the yuccas don't look too welcoming. That must be why they're labeled "control plant." (The full sign reads "Southeast Water Pollution Control Plant.")
The plant choices are wonderful. Ah, California...
Definitely a control plant!
It's not a Bismarkia nobilis but it is huge and impressive! Heavy sigh.
And there were several of them!

This is a fairly young garden and it would be great to see it in a few years as the plants grow larger! One more reason to revisit this area!
