Look at the sexy legs on that arctostaphylos!
There are the opuntia patches, at the base of the Yucca rostrata. They look at home in my garden now too.
I think this is Agave americana 'Yellow Ribbons'.
Looking back at the front garden, Nolina 'La Siberica' on the right.
Akebia vine on the front of the house, I don't think I've ever visited when this is in bloom.
Entering the back garden...
Eucalyptus pauciflora subsp. niphophila
Later in the season that container is usually filled with a big blooming brugmansia.
Palms, palms and more palms!
Agave ovatifolia, stunning, always.
Melianthus major 'Purple Haze', emerging from its winter slumber.
Their Rhodocoma capensis is given the room to strut its stuff, I'd love to grow this but know there's just not room in my small garden.
A mild winter means no agave mishaps.
And this not hardy Sedum rubrotinctum looks amazing!
Another eucalyptus and the always stunning simple red pot...
This is the first time I've seen the greenhouse full of plants.
The bamboo also has room to really show off here.
Epimedium wushanense, I believe.
Abutilon megapotamicum x 'Marathon'
And now we're just about back around to the beginning.
But not before we pause to appreciate the variegated daphniphyllum.
Hopefully I'll visit again later in the season and can share summer's bounty with you as usual.
