Post Dry Garden May 2017.
I made my once a year pilgrimage. I've deduced after all the years,May is the best time for the largest variety. I myself got a nice Aloe speciosa in a one gallon- not easy to find them for sale and even harder in smaller affordable sizes. I also got a small- 3"- Boojum. Wanted one for years. Nice to just say Boojum its such an exotic cactus..yes what looks so tree like,is a cactus.
the photos-

Image
Cussonia paniculata.

Image
Dioon edule. A Great cycad for small pots forever if need be.

Image
Crested Pachypodium lamerei

Image

Image
Tillandsia's red and orange "enhanced"

Image
Lots of small and cool little perennials,both hardy and subtropicals.

Image
Euphorbia lambii

Image
Aoenium sp.

Image
Resident Panther.

Image
Aloe deltoides

Image
Yucca rostratas galore and various Cereus sp.

Image
Hardy Broms NFS.

Image
Aoeniums and Crassula capitata mostly.

Image
Cussonia spicata.

Image
Parrot Impatiens in the shade garden plants section.

Image
Crested Myrtleocactus.

Image
Agave gypsophyla variegated.

Image

Image
Agave ovatas (?)

Image
Agave tintora.

Image
Aloe speciosa

Image

Image
And finish up with Tllandsia cyanea.
Thanks!

Nice collection of plants Stan. A collection you won't easily find over here. Reminds me to check my local nurseries soon. Last year I found some nice tropicals almost on my doorstep which were on my list for years.

Nice pics Stan... I could spend hours there. Is the nursery close to you? The Agave ovatifolia is I believe parryi v truncata and tintora I have never heard of but the plant looks like Agave parrasana "meat claw" perhaps
