Aeoniums were planted all over!
I love these black ones especially with the nice yucca gloriosa in the background. These were taken in front of the restaurant at the Malkin Bowl.
Succulents anyone? I don't think I have ever seen more echeveria in my entire life.
Phormium surfer I believe....
Danger! I think I shrieked when I saw this pair of epic agave americana (you can faintly make out the one in the background).
This guy had been largely de-spiked... too bad.
I'm always amazed at how good the zone 8/9 plants looks at stanley park.... sigh.
What do you suppose this is supposed to be?
Succulent art of some kind. I was enamoured by all these wonderful echeveria.
I'm thinking it's some kind of possessed clown. It's creepy but a twisted side of me likes it. If I envision the smily face to be mountains, the nose to be the sun, and the eyes/brows to be the clouds it almost becomes an even more epic landscape. hmmm.. this could be a fun game.
I could literally spend hours exploring the gardens of Stanley Park. Unfortunately we had some sort of schedule to keep. Next time.
I absolutely need these!!! Prickly flowers... does it get any better?
