There was no parking to be had right around the nursery, which was good because I ended up next to the Fitzgibbons building and took advantage of the dry weather to walk around and check out the plantings, the work of Sean Hogan and Cistus Nursery.
These Yucca rostrata were hacked badly back in 2015 (photos here), I was happy to see that they'd grown out of it.
Looking at this photo I'm now wondering if this might be a Yucca schottii, rather than a Y. rostrata...
Aren't they adorable spiky fluff balls?
Across the parking lot is this Lyonothamnus floribundus subsp. aspleniifolius (Catalina Ironwood).
Such a good looking tree...
More bark of interest, on a nearby eucalyptus.
I've walked down to Pomarius now and I'm rather awestruck by this Willy Guhl planter turned into a fountain. Damn!
The mossy/algae patina is just to die for...
At the other end of the nursery were these pieces by artist Dustin Gimbel.
I hadn't seen them for awhile, it was a nice surprise to come upon them like this.
Making my way to the greenhouse to pay for my purchases (a hardy ground orchid, Bletilla striata!) I spied this perfectly spiky Agave 'Blue Glow'...
Which was only (slightly) outdone by this Agave 'Snow Glow' (I think) which I spotted later in the day outside another plant shop.
