Agave bovicornuta, this beauty has already sold—I know because a friend bought it.
Agave attenuata 'Ray of Light'
Agave americana, 'Mediopicta Alba'
Sweet little greenhouse in the corner. Rik says it gets very hot in the summertime, hence the shade cloth.
Colletia hystrix (yes, somehow I managed to leave this spiky beauty behind)
Tricyrtis formosana 'Samurai' (Toad Lily), I really should have grabbed one of these. By the time I was ready to leave I'd forgotten all about it.
Erysimum × hybrida Winter™ Orchid looking lovely backed by some Calluna vulgaris.
How hot is this combination!?
Blueberries look so pretty even when there are no berries.
I almost bought some sugar snap peas, but then remembered I promised Andrew I wouldn't plant anything in the driveway stock tanks this year as he wants to paint that side of the house without fighting plants.
Blechnum gibbum 'Silver Lady' looked like it might have been nipped by our week of winter. It was still quite lovely however.
Pineapple guava/Acca sellowiana
Arctostaphylos uva-ursi 'Vancouver Jade'
I thought it was rather lovely how they have the bags of soil and amendments covered. I get so tired of buying bags that are sopping wet (we're still quite in the thick of the rainy season here). This shot is also a great indication of the wide inventory of materials available here at Fang, they are definitely a neighborhood garden supply shop. Who doesn't need a place you can dash to quickly on that sunny afternoon when you're working in the garden and suddenly realize you need ____ (fill in the blank).
Euphorbia some somebody (I forgot to look at the tag, sure that I knew, but now doubting myself)
Ha! That yellow bloom, daring to be different.
One last look at the outdoor offerings...
A few just-arrived containers...
And then I decided to check out the indoor plant offerings, since I was already there...
And finally a nice arctostaphylos branch with tillandsia.
If you're in the neighborhood (between Portland's Arbor Lodge, Kenton and Portsmouth areas) check them out! Oh and if you've got pets they're a pet-supply shop too!
