This Agave victoriae-reginae was begging to be rescued, but even at 50% off it was still $19.99 and even I can’t rationalize 20 bucks on a dying agave.
They also had a ‘Bumps and Bruises’ section with chipped pottery and statuary. This $49 large terrazzo-esque container would be a steal at $25...
But it would require careful planting to conceal the chipped corner. Pass.
They do have quite an impressive (not chipped) container collection.
And some very tempting succulents! Not winter hardy here in Portland of course...
I’ve been flirting with getting a Ceanothus for quite awhile and this one caught my eye…”Evergreen groundcover 1 ft. high 6 ft. wide, it has blue flowers on dark green foliage” plus those beautiful red stems! Sold. And no, the 6ft wide part doesn’t scare me. It’s going where I’ve got the room for that.
Melianthus Purple Haze is another that’s been on my lust list (a wish list…only stronger) for awhile. But this one was pricey…so I passed.
The Purple Emperor Stonecrop had such fabulous color!
Speaking of fabulous color these Yuccas stopped me in my tracks, they were practically glowing!
Yucca 'bright star'…I guess this color is only a temporary thing, occurring when the temperature (cold) and light (bright) conditions are just right. It will revert to its normal yellow and green as it warms up. Still I couldn’t resist…
