Succulents and agaves oh my!!
I don't even know how to best describe my love for succulents. I find that each one has its own personality if you will. Some are spiky, some are soft, some are gnarly, and some are just plain cute!! So I though I would share some of my succulent collection with you. It's still on the small side (though growing at a quick pace!!!)
Agave 'blue glow'
Agave parryi 'cream spike'
Aloe aristata... I hope this one is hardy enough outside.... It is in a really protected spot but I might remove one of the little pups on it just for winter insurance!!!
I think this is a little baby agave parryi ... I really have no clue. It was $3 at the Van Dusen Botanical Gardens plant sale this spring. I couldn't turn that down!!!!
My attempt at a great succulent pot! The echeveria glauca is king!
more echeveria glauca and two other fun succulents.
Every garden needs sempervivums!! These ones grow so quickly and are hardy!
An Aeonium I named "lucy" :)
Aloe polyphylla!!! I really want to plant this but I'm too chicken to loose it to old man winter.
Finally, agave cornelius! This bad boy rocks! It screams attitude!
