Check out these amazing agave parryi. These beauties have been growing in her garden approximately 6-7 years.
Linda's garden has been going since 1998 when her house was built. When asked about her love for succulents, Linda tells me it goes back to her early years spending her allowance money on succulents!! In other words, she has always been a plant lover.
I always love seeing great plant combinations like these.
And speaking of an epic succulent garden .... This is the kind of garden I could only dream of! It looks more like something from San Francisco than B.C.
I asked Linda what plants she considers "staples" in the garden. And to my joy and surprise, she tells me phormiums!! I don't have any of her phormium pictures, but Linda has had much success with them in the garden. To me, this goes to speak for a great microclimate with excellent drainage. Being tucked closely along the East side of Vancouver Island certainly makes Denman Island a coveted growing region by PNW standards.
And Linda's garden certainly is a testament to both a great microclimate, but more than anything a loving gardener.
And check it out, she even has palms!!! This chamaerops humilis is certainly a favourite of mine.
So I want to give a big thanks and shout out to Linda for sharing these wonderful photos of her fabulous garden! It is truly inspiring!
