So we've been pot crazy this year. And we've just featured lots of overall and combination shots on a couple of our more recent posts. Now let's take a closer at some of the occupants of those pots, the succulents. And as I focus the spotlight on them, once again feel free to be distracted by the pots...
|Dyckia 'Morris Hobbs'|
I 'almost' got into Dyckias, Puyas, and Hechtias, in a big way but before my interest really got going the viciousness of them (especially puyas) reigned on it. I almost got rid of this one but despite being neglected for a couple of years it did well. And when I was looking for a plant that would look great in this zinc planter (like a miniature stock tank) caught sight of it in the greenhouse they seemed a perfect match. It's persistence deserved to be rewarded by being repotted.
|Fascicularia bicolor subsp. canaliculata|
|Aloe hybrid mix|
|Agave victoria reginae|
|Aloe 'Green Sand'|
|Aloe brevifolia (white variegated)|
|Aloe deltoideodonta x jucunda, A. 'Kelly Blue', A. 'Doren Black'|
|Agave 'Shaka Zulu'|
|Echeveria 'Ruby Blush', E. 'Black Prince', E. affinis|
|Echeveria purposorum and a munched Echeveria agavoides 'Taurus'|
Going through the photos made me realise that if I include all the ones I intend to highlight this will be a very photo intensive post. So will do another batch in a few days. But for now I'll leave you with the fabulous Aloe 'Sparkling Burgundy'...
