Sunset Boulevard Nursery
Our December trip to Los Angles was intentionally low key. Not a lot on the list of "must see/must do" but rather more downtime just spent relaxing together. It was lovely. But...but...one wants to make the most of time spend in a sunny warm climate so I had a list of places to visit, if the opportunity presented itself. As luck would have it Denise (A Growing Obsession) had almost offhandedly mentioned Sunset Boulevard Nursery a week or two before our trip. I'd made a mental note, and I visited.
I want that cart, a lot. Can you imagine?
Note the palm trees – we're not in Portland people.
Who needs a Buddha head that big???
I forget which Grevillea this was, but does it really matter?
Ya'll know what this is right?
Leucadendron argenteum (And Kris, if you're reading...plant one already!)
Adenanthos x cunninghamii (always photogenic)...
Trevesia palmata (Snowflake Aralia)
Someday I'll find one of these when I can actually purchase it and bring it home with me.
OMG...no!!! Aegopodium podagraria 'Variegatum' (Bishop's Weed) at $10.99 for a gallon container I could have been a millionaire if I'd sold mine during the big dig.
In the middle there is Agave gypsophila 'Ivory Curls' – a beauty no?
And with child.
Echeveria agavoides 'Lipstick'
The sun! The succulents! (the girl from Oregon all blissed-out that she was experiencing this on December 21st!)...
And wrapping it up with Echeveria setosa deminuta. I could do a lot of damage here, in the right season and with a way to get things home.
