This year I wasn't completely on game as far as my photo taking, which is a shame because this operation is slick. Clean and organized greenhouses, a gorgeous office, and beautiful plants...
Inside their only heated greenhouse were many treasures, including a sea of Echeveria ('Blue Atoll' I believe)...
Agave applanata 'Cream Spike'...
Larger E. 'Blue Atoll' ...
Oh that I could plant like this, in the ground, in my garden (Zone 9 dreams...)
And tree ferns! I don't think these were for sale, and if they were I am sure I couldn't afford them. Plus where would I put them over the winter?
Finally I tore myself away and made it out to the unheated houses.
Sedum sieboldii 'October Daphne'... what a big name for a small plant.
Little Fatsia japonica.
Aka Agave victoriae-reginae
A Dianella prunina 'Rainbow Twist,' which I lost over our cold and nasty winter of 2016/17, is making a comeback. These little fighters are tougher than I thought.
Dryopteris erythrosora/autumn fern
Love the double-decker cart!
Sempervivum arachnoideum 'Forest Frost'...I thought the lovely browns looked more like a 'Desert Dream'.
Sempervivum 'Shirley's Joy', I meant to grab a couple of these. I somehow managed to not do so.
These bits and pieces were on the top of a table in one of the greenhouses. They look like what might get swept up, after a bunch of flats are moved. They also look like the next crop of plants, assuming they get stuck in a little soil.
Tradescantia andersoniana 'Blushing Bride'
Wow. That's a little too festive for my tastes.
So neat and tidy!
Did I mention there are over 70 greenhouses? Ya.
This is a big operation. That cool two story building below is the office.
Not my haul! This is either Megan's, Patricia's, or a mix of both of theirs. Not bad eh? (I think there may also have already been a few loaded in the car)
Dyckia 'Pale Ryder', Agave montana, and a Sedum sieboldii 'October Daphne'
Clockwise from upper left: Echeveria 'Blue Atoll', Eryngium bourgatii, a couple of small E. 'Blue Atoll, a pair of Graptosedum 'California Sunset', a Graptopetalum Superbum Paraguayense and an Echeveria subsessilis.
Another Dyckia, Anigozanthos 'Bush Ranger' (kangaroo paw with beautiful orange-red blooms and a ridiculous name), Sedum spathulifolium 'Carnea', a Staghorn fern that's a gift for a friend (hope she doesn't see this), two Scleranthus uniflorus, and the conjoined twins are Agave montana.
Wrapping it up a Dicksonia antarctica, Selaginella 'Braunii', two Athyrium otophorum, and an Abutilon Nuabtang, the orange version of their Nuabyell, which I've had great luck with. What a fun shopping adventure with my blogger friends, thank you Mark and all at Little Prince of Oregon!
