I took so many photos during my visit to Portland Nursery I thought I’d share a few more (plus there were other plant purchases we need to discuss). Pedilanthus or Devil's backbone, I couldn’t buy this plant because I don't have the strength to resist the temptation to pull off all the leaves.
So so spiky.
Whenever I see one of these grafted plants I think of the characters on Star Trek which my brothers and I called “The Bunheads.”
Lots of spikes…
And friendly plants too...
Loved this begonia.
And I have a love/hate relationship with the colorful crotons.
But you know I love me some colorful pottery!
As I seem to blog about every winter, a visit to the greenhouse at the Division St Portland Nursery is a great way to shake the winter blues. With all the houseplants and decorative pottery 30% off this coming weekend (at both Portland Nursery locations) it’s a great time to visit!
Even the tillandsias will be on sale…
And the staghorns…
And the bonsai…
So what else did I buy? Here’s “my haul”
I fell hard for this
It wasn’t quite right for my Case Study planter but I picked it up to go in this white hanging container from IKEA (photo from summer 2012). The mixed succulent planting hasn’t looked good for awhile now. It will live in the basement and go outside for the summer.
I also picked up another Cryptanthus (it’s not blurry in real life)…
And this Stapelia. I have no idea if the dark color is natural or due to stress, but I loved it!
The sale details:
30% off all houseplants
Friday January 17 thru Sunday January 19, 2014
Both locations, Stark St and Division St
The fine print…as I mentioned Portland nursery extended their 30% off sale prices to me in advance so that I could shop and post about it before the sale. They also kindly gave me a $25 gift card. I acknowledge these kindnesses but also trust you know I only write about things I am really and truly excited about.
