I should be able to tell you about this palm, but I cannot. Why can't I remember palm names?
Over there, that's what I was here to see, the Agave ovatifolia. They were behind a fence so getting a photo was difficult.
The garden as a whole had a nice casual modern vibe.
It's a pie-shaped corner lot, here's what you see while deciding to go left or go right...
Since it's on top of a short cement base the fence on this side is even taller.
I peeked through...
And then—I'm not proud of this—I held my camera up over the fence to snap a shot. So much for their privacy...but look at those agaves!
Continuing on to SE Portland (the last garden was in N Portland)—and jumping ahead to early January—I came across this small front garden, also with Agave ovatifolia...and rocks. Lots and lots of rocks.
I think it's really time I declare Agave ovatifolia THE agave of Portland, if I haven't already.
I love the long Corten raised planters here, and I'm sure the plants like the extra drainage.
