During the family reunion festivities in Las Cruces last June I was able to make a quick break for it and check out a local nursery, Guzman's.
Pulling into the parking lot I was surprised to see these large 'Dynamite' Crape Myrtles...
It's one of the short-list trees Andrew and I had been discussing as a replacement for our hacked up street trees, that is if the city follows up on the unauthorized butcher job and we get to replace them (long, ugly, story).
These were gorgeous and only $299 (that seems like a good price?)
This place was full of charm.
I've got no idea what this is, but I took three photos of it.
Dinner plate sized...
There was only one other car in the parking lot, I pretty much had the place to myself.
These plants were off in a corner by themselves, perhaps already sold to a lucky customer?
One last look at the Lagerstroemia and it was time to get back to the hotel.
But wait! En-route to the hotel (reunion location) I discovered a second location for Guzman's, of course I had to stop.
Love that feathery water plant, I've never seen it for sale here, but Renee (Gardening Turned up to Eleven) has some and named it for me: Myriophyllum aquaticum.
So many plants looking for someone to take them home!
Love the pond...
And the Ocotillo! (usually bare-root plants aren't, well, planted)
A few indoor selections...
And now it really was time to head back to the hotel (I was late!)...
