This was my second visit to Seaside Gardens, this time I was prepared, knowing just how amazing their gardens were since I walked them back in 2016.
Agave gypsophila 'Ivory Curls'
Aloe 'Hercules', a tree aloe
Abromeitiella Brevifolia/Deuterocohnia brevifolia, whatever you want to call this crazy terrestrial bromeliad I love it.
Cyphostemma juttae, at the front
Xanthorrhoea preissii, Western Australian grass tree
Pedilanthus bracteatus, tall slipper plant
I loved this next mash-up of exotic (to me, leucadendron) and not so exotic (kniphofia), not to mention orange and pink. A color combination I struggle with...
Kniphofia and leucadendron
And then of course, there is the ruler of them all, the protea. This one Protea 'Pink Ice'...
Leucadendron argenteum (Silver Tree) with a yellow-flowered strelitzia, bird of paradise.
With just a few minutes left before they closed I quickly dashed around the sales area.
Adenanthos sericeus, commonly known as woolly bush.
Such a great plant that I wish I could grow.
Oh! A pyrrosia...
And a ginormous staghorn fern...
If you find yourself in Carpinteria, California, you'll definitely want to visit Seaside Gardens!
