The Aeonium Challenge, contained
That empty container on the right, below, used to have an Agave in it. I decided the textures were too similar and this corner need something different.
Enter the Aeoniums...
The silver business is Leucophyta brownii. I read Zone 9 on the tag, some call it 8. We'll see.
The black "grass" is Uncinia strictissima.
I'm normally not a fan of mixed containers and would have rather put his little combo together in the ground somewhere. Sadly I didn't have a suitable space for something temporary.
Sitting on the ground snapping images I glanced to my left and there was my previous Aeonium challenge exemplar, the bulletin board. I still love it!
It's summer and the Aeonium livin is easy!
I think the combo works.
In fact I liked it so much I repeated part of it with another Aeonium, the one that had been sunk in a vase. No Uncinia strictissima here though.
Remember you have until July 4th to email me (spiky plants at gmail dot com) your Aeonium Challenge entry! (details here).
