I’m a list maker; the act of writing down and prioritizing things helps me to feel organized. Knowing this about myself it came as a shock when David C, the Desert Dweller, asked where to find my Agave and Opuntia plant lists on my blog. He thought he’d seen them there at some point.
That’s when I realized I had no plant lists on my blog.
But, I do now! Of course I really should have thought of (and done) this a long time ago. What a great resource for myself as well as a place for readers to look if they are curious about the plants in my garden. Plus I hope maybe someone here in Portland who’s interested in a little spiky zone-pushing will stumble upon it and ask me some questions. The list is a separate page on the blog. You can click on the link in the upper right hand corner under "pages," or click here.
There is a downside though. I now know I have over 50 different types of Agaves, close to 100 plants if you count the multiples. OH MY!
The list is nowhere near complete; I’m just getting started! So far it’s just the Agaves, Opuntia, Yucca, Arctostaphylos (Manzanita), Grevillea, Mahonia and Callistemon found in my garden (and in containers, some currently not in the garden since it's January). The number in parenthesis is the qty of that particular plant, if there is more than one. And before you start thinking I've got a huge garden remember a lot of these are very small plants.
I only have one other concern...can you still respect me now that you know the true depths of my plant lust?
