I’ve said this many times before (usually in reference to the McMenamins restaurants) but I love spending my money at local businesses that make the effort to spruce up their surroundings, and in turn the city. Why drive out to the suburbs to spend money in a chain fabric store in a strip mall when I can enjoy this!?
Once inside I inquired about the mystery plant, perhaps a Nolina? They weren’t able to identify the plant but they did tell me I could check with the guys at Cistus as they’re the ones that designed and installed the plantings. Of course they would be behind this little oasis, it makes perfect sense!
