  1. I am blown away by your FOCUS. We just finished reading the Steve Jobs book by Walter Isaacson, and that was his (Jobs') main key to success in anything.

  2. This is great! And holy moly you have a lot of agaves!

    I keep a plant list on an Excel doc. Along with the genus, species and cultivar, I keep other info I need to remember in the various columns, like where I acquired it and when, or any special care notes. It has been invaluable when my brain fails - as it does on a regular basis!

  3. I would love to see/hear about your Sansevierias! I thought to check here for them based on your comment on this page: http://www.stupidgardenplants.com/archives/unidentified-cactus-still-plant-hoarding-even-in-the-winter#comments.

    Great blog, keep it up:)

    1. I wish I new what they were and I would share the info! I only have three, none of which I have tags for. Two were bought as "houseplants" at the big box (the one in the comment you mention) and the third probably had a tag at some point but that was a long long time (and several moves) ago. Sorry!

  4. I finally did a census of cacti and succulents and I am at 287! A species list is forthcoming this winter ...

    2. I really wish tumblr and blogger would "play nice" together ...

    3. Me too, as well as Wordpress. So silly that we can't all just get along!

  5. Hi, New to your site - and also to pointy sharp daggery plants!! Which I now lOVE!!

    It would be SO awesome if you included links to their pics here! Ya know - in between your otherwise busy day.

    1. Wouldn't that be fabulous? I'll get my assistant on that asap! (that will be a great project if we have a rainy spring)

  6. You really ought to get Rosa minutifolia--it's native to California (and Baja) and thorny as all get out. Can be persnickety too as it doesn't like too much water and will croak if kept too wet in summer. But it's so pretty with lovely mauvey pink flowers waving around on those bristley canes with fern like leaves. Plant likes to bloom after rain, so flowers can occur at almost any time of year. Try here for pics, http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.17261.1&tab=36

    I thought I read on your blog sometime back that you were interested in Acanthogilia gloriosa. The Rancho Santa Botanic Garden in Claremont, CA has a big one growing on the grounds. Armed to the teeth! With beooootiful white flowers. If one is a member, one can buy a packet of seeds from RSABG....... I have a bunch of pics of this plant if you want to see it.

    1. Thank you for the plant leads Tessie! I think one thorny rose is enough for me (I can't risk my reputation as a rose hater you know! And I've already got the Wingthorn rose)...but yes Acanthogilia gloriosa looks like something I'd fall for. I wonder how it would do up here in rainy Portland, Oregon?

  9. I need a recommendation for the Willamette Valley, a dark euphorbia and a variegated green/white one. What do you know of "blackie" and glacier blue"? Thanks.

    1. Well, I know nothing. I've not grown either one. E. 'Blackbird' has its moments of looking fabulous, and then some not so fabulous. E. 'Ascot Rainbow' is a nice variegated one. Good luck!

  10. Where did you find the plant Stachyurus salicifolius? Saw it in a Seattle nursery, but have not been able to find it here on the East Coast. Appreciate the help.

  11. You want an A. baileyana 'Purpurea'?!? I have one you can have. It needs a good home.
    I might also have a Yucca 'Color Guard' or two.

    Your blog is the best! Thanks for sharing your garden adventures.
