Closeup of the same. A gift of Peter Zale--one of America's premier plantsmen. It came originally from Clark County, Illinois. It reminds me of a yellow cyclamen!
I envy the Californians the vast array of hardy succulents there...but some are worth trucking in and out...this Echeveria is a champion! It's put up with abuse (fell off that perch more than once--but not in this pot)...lost the cultivar name: help anyone?
|Hylotelephium (Sedum) 'Matrona'|
|Opuntia aff. azurea|
The fruits are as pretty as the flowers--and last a hell of a lot longer!
|Sedum (Phedimus) hybridum|
|Rumex scutatus 'Silver Shield'|
|Chrysanthemum weyrichii 'Elfreda"|
|Pelargonium x hybrid|
|Zauschneria (Epilobium) septentrionalis|
Every fall we play the game of "Chicken": how late can we leave the tender house plants outdoors before frost mars or kills them?
In the next week or so this will migrate in...but dang it, it looks so good out there!
It's warming up--time to go plant some bulbs!
