This is one of my favourite spots in the garden. It's hot hot hot and thankfully all the yuccas love it! And the nearby succulent "ish" planter (ish deriving from the presence of cordyline and kangaroo paws) is loving the heat too!
And now for some real foliage excitement. A new to me palm! I have been searching and searching for a nice sabal minor with no success. But thanks to Charlie from the Pacific Northwest Palm Society I finally have a beautiful one for the garden. Now where to plant it?
Dicksonia Antarctica enjoying the morning sunshine...
With all the sunshine we have been having my chamaerops humilis has been exploding with new growth. I absolutely love this palm!
Bananas are not only massive but also cast one of the coolest shadows during the morning hours.
It's a palmy affair...
And it wouldn't be the foliage follow-up without some good pokes... The agaves are certainly happy.
This next one is really special ... Cyathea Australis! This was the kindest gift. It has been grown from spores of tree ferns in a particularly cold region of Tasmania!
Apparently these are rare in cultivation and that most labelled cyathea australis are in fact cyathea cooperi. I have it in the most sheltered spot of the yard and will be giving it some protection to see it through the winters.
A view I don't usually share is of the larger trees in the yard. When I saw large I really mean monster sized.
And last but not least, olea leccino! This is one happy tree to see in the summer evening. It glows!
