On the last day, in the last hours, of our trip south in September I finally stopped at East Bay Nursery in Berkeley, CA.
It wasn't on my list of places to visit but since it was just around the corner from our hotel (ish) we'd driven past it enough times I figured I needed to stop in. I wish I saw 4" asparagus ferns available in Portland area nurseries. I'd be more willing to experiment with a few in the ground.
Someone was being creative, I don't even know what these are...
Buddha's hand citrus, fun! I would have to grow this, if I could.
Maytenus boaria 'Green Showers'
Slow to moderate growth, damn. I want mine to grow fast.
This was my last chance to take a Leucadendron argenteum home with me...and I passed.
Oh my! Check out that price!!! Okay yes this was a 7-gallon pot but really?
Love that plant in the middle.
I had one briefly, a couple of years ago. Winter did it in.
Last chance for Agave gypsophila 'Ivory Curls' ($50, I passed)...
Last chance for Agave salmiana 'Medio Picta' (no)...
Oh and there's that magnolia (michelia) I fell for at Marcia Donahue's garden.
Yikes! Too rich for me (which is good since it's also not hardy for me!).
