I love the foliage of my Schefflera taiwaniana more and more every day... The new growth that started our so small and delicate has grown into this large display. I took these pictures earlier in the week, after our brief rainfall…the first in weeks! (.08”) My little Schef has put on new foliage too… For more Foliage Follow-up action visit Pam and her blog Digging, our hostess for this event. And here's a heads-up for all you foliage lovers in the SF Bay area...Portland's own Sean Hogan (of the much blogged about Cistus nursery) will be at Flora Grubb tomorrow. He's giving a talk on "The Art of the Rosette," I'm counting on YOU to go and blog about it.
Info from their website:
How to Design with Gorgeous Rosette Succulents
Sean Hogan will talk with you about how to use our favorite rosette succulents - like agaves, yuccas, echeverias, bromeliads - in making beautiful gardens. One of the premier plant explorers in North America, Sean will also be giving a sneak peek of cool new succulent rosette plants he's propagating at his astonishing nursery in Portland.
We ask that you RSVP so that we can gauge how many people will be coming - but there is no assigned seating and the event is open to anyone who would like to come along. Best to arrive by 10:30.
