Yaquina Nursery, so many plants...

Yesterday I mentioned my visit to Yaquina Nursery and shared photos of what I bought. Today I share images taken at the nursery—and this is a very photo-rich post. I hope you enjoy wandering these three greenhouses as much as I did—it was quite the visual treat verging on overload...
















Which greenhouse to explore next!?
We opted for this one, simply because it was the furthest out, then went back to the one shown above.






Yes, that's Andrew. Patiently waiting while I looked at everything and snapped photo after photo.

























Natural pest control.







Whew, the end.

  1. Dear Lord, beginning to think plants are like money. The more you get, the more come naturally your way. Wow.

  2. Lots to look at! Andrew should be glad you focused on snapping pictures rather than snapping up one of everything. The agave in photo #48 is gorgeous - a relative of Agave lopantha 'Quadricolor' maybe? I've never seen one with that lovely pink color. The purple-pink color of the Senecio radicans (?) in photo #6 was also unusual. I even loved the nursery's sign.

    1. I always thought pink was the 4th color of the quad in Agave lopantha 'Quadricolor'.

  3. Fun stroll through those greenhouses! The plant in photo 12 is cute and unusual, reminds me of fish crackers from outer space...
    I happen to grow both types of Hawarthia featured in photo 32, in the south-western themed pot. Never seen it turned this cool bright red: it must be the winter chill.

    1. Actually I believe it is drought stress causing the fabulous coloration.

  4. Lots of work, growing lots of plants, and some get away from you.

    Loved the chicken.

    2. Ditto, Eliza. I can just imagine you in that environment.

  6. Could spend a lot of time in there. I like the low-tech vibe too just letting the plants cast their magic.
