This acacia pravissima on the other hand could always find a home in my yard.
And of course an object of plant lust... chamaerops humilis cerifera.
Pineapple guava is a plant that always attracts my attention. I think its the silvery undersides of the leaves. I have never grown one of these though I am told they do really well here in the PNW.
Here's where I started to lose it. I even had dreams about this plant.
opuntias, yuccas and agaves... I think the owners of Phoenix Perennials are my people
oh but it gets even better... dasylirion Wheeleri, yucca rigida, and dasylirion longissimum. I sense a desert bed overhaul in my near future. I first have to tackle a jungle of ivy and blackberries.
I almost grabbed another aloe polyphylla - apparently squirrels don't only like to hurt my aloe aristatas. I found one of my beautiful aloe polyphylla desiccated and torn into hundreds of pieces not too long ago when I came home from work. It wasn't pretty.
More plants to temp me with with. I have long been an avid fan of eucalyptus trees and Phoenix Perennials has one of the best selections of these beauties around.
But more than anything, I lusted after this planter. I know just where this belongs... with ME!
I actually felt like my head was spinning after a while.
And my head is still spinning looking back on these pictures. I don't even know if I can say it, well type it (which theoretically should be easier) ... I didn't buy anything! WHAT?! I know, I don't know what happened. I was so very much overwhelmed.
