Pomarius Nursery, it's not just for summer!

It's been over a year since I shared pictures of the magical place known as Pomarius. I called that post "even more beautiful than before" and it truly was. But they've done it again. How can a place that has always been fabulous just keep getting better and better? Just for fun I went back through my archives to find images from my first visit in 2009, I remember how blown away I was then. But now...

All of this in November! (granted it's been a warm month)...

I believe these are Anemone × hybrida ‘Honorine Jobert’? I need to plant a few, if only to see their green centers left on the stems after the petals have fallen.  Why didn't I buy one???

Want! Really really....really!

Aren't they fabulous?

There was a pair, and I coveted them.

The pavers and defined "room-like" spaces were new to me this visit. I think they're very successful.

Agave tequilana and a great contrast from the Albizia julibrissin ‘Summer Chocolate’.

Let's just enjoy the eye candy for a bit, shall we?...

The landowner has built several new buildings along the railroad tracks, and there are more in the works. One of them will include indoor space for Pomarius (yay!).

How smart is this? Much better than a rigid black plastic pot.

A benefit to the expanded nursery space in-between the buildings? Room to display clearance plants without having them mixed in with the general inventory.

So many Agaves, and on sale!

Not just Agaves though...

Heading back toward the center of Pomarious "proper"...

I'm not sure which I love more, the main plant or the babies.

Speaking of babies! Peter's dogs were out and about, how cute are these faces!?

I wish I could remember their names. I am so bad with names...

Purple on purple!

And more Agaves, so many agaves...

That greenhouse has a lot to do with the title of this post. It holds fabulous holiday decorations as well as tender plants. We'll get there in a minute.

I was so excited to see these Wavy Cloak ferns! ((Cheilanthes sinuata / Astrolepis sinuata) I bought one at a different nursery last year and have been wishing for more ever since. I bought a pair.

This Camellia ('yuletide' I believe) screams Christmas to me...

These little darlings live in the greenhouse.

As do these!

How much did I love these little bottle-brush Christmas trees? So very much!

I bought the tall chartreuse one, a medium size brown one and a small yellow one. So excited about them!

I also bought this great planter.

And I'm motivated to make some sort of mossy wreath, I loved this one! Thanks for another inspiring visit Peter, Wes, and all the fine folks at Pomarius...you guys are amazing!

  1. Sweet! Do you know if they're open through the winter? Looks like a great place to visit for a little extra cheer. If you want some anemones, I'm sure I can help.

  2. Incredible! I am lusting after the evergreens like that cube between the pair of pots you liked. I have some very old family bottlebrush trees but I love the bright colors of these new ones. I think I would drop a bundle if I could actually shop there.

    1. The folks at Pomarius use clipped boxwood in fabulous ways! And I thought of your bottlebrush tree comment when I bought another at Target yesterday, I wish I had some older ones.

  3. Pomarius just keeps getting better all of the time! Must get down there and visit them again one of these days. Adorable dogs and so many agaves on sale. I'm surprised that none of those came home with you. (The agaves, not the dogs.)

    1. Have you been back since the Fling? And re: the Agaves, did you not read my recent Agave post? I think I've got plenty...

  4. Dying here. Just. dying. What a fabulous nursery! Thanks for the great tour - your purchases are what I would have grabbed if only I weren't a million miles away. Also coveting the round rust & concrete(?) table, the big terra cotta pots with the wavy pattern, the agaves, the greenhouse... Thanks again for a great post!

    1. Ah, you missed it during the Fling too, didn't you? Yes...next time!

  7. What a fun visit to Pomarius. I love those hourglass containers too. Are those Beschorneria in them?

  8. Spotted your blog months ago, thought I'd come back and visit. Have to admit I never seen a garden center like this before, of course it's zone 7a here but still. Many plants you show would be indoors here, well at least they were the last time I went to a garden center this time of year. Anyway enjoyed the visit.

    1. 7a isn't that far off, we're 8 here. Although we like to push things a bit...

  9. I love 'Honorine Jobert', though I've been told those Japanese Anemones can be very aggressive.

    1. Sounds like that's the case...hmm....

  10. I still have fond memories of Pomarius from the 2014 Fling. What I wouldn't give to have such a place where I live! The way the products are displayed is very inspirational.

    1. Okay that's it. We're moving to Davis and opening a nursery! (ha...)

  11. I'm a bit shocked that you didn't bring home any agaves with your other purchases but perhaps I shouldn't be - I imagine the area under cover is already quite crowded, isn't it? Those tall chess piece-like containers are very you.

    1. It is, and what with the mealy bug infestation I'm not bringing any other plants home that they can attack. I'm in "get through it" stage for winter and come spring it's war. (chemicals are better to use when the plants are outside)

  12. Magical place...definitely time for another visit. You didn't buy Honorine because several of your blogging buddies can provide you with an endless supply. Just say the word.

    1. Word! Will they be up in time for the spring swap?
