What an amazing place............Heaven, I wonder how many people are employed there to keep it looking so special.

David, the fern is Adiantum aleuticum from North America. Deciduous in winter but fully hardy in the UK.

Red Hot Poker. Yes, looks like Kniphofia caulescens to me
And they do tend to do that. Die at the base and fall over. But mine never re-root like that.

One of my favourite gardens. Inspirational.

Incidentally, the garden with succulents is 'The Desert Wash' - the 'Mediterranean Garden' is another bit. Or, at least, it was unless they renamed it. I remember going to the opening do when there were very few plants - you could see how beautifully they had graded the stones and contoured the landscape to imitate a desert wash and the biggest feature then was the 'stegosaurus' bridge.

Glad you and others enjoyed the pictures its good to share it can be labour intensive, around 3 hrs for this post, but once its there it can be viewed again and again unlike FB where I could upload hundreds of pictures in an instant but they then disappear into the ether just as quick.

Kev.... sorry late to the party. Wow what a post. The Xeric area is amazing. I could spend a whole day there :D Trying to get my head around what those two tall Nolina were. Could they be hibernica? Thanks for taking the time and effort Kev and on a nice hot day forecast I must make a trip there :D

We did mention your name as we walked round thinking you might like the spikies.....surprised to see such an array of plants the Euphorbia made a nice foil for the whole area this plant grows in such difficult places.
In Lanzarote it is somtimes the only plant growing in the black rock lava fields something I cannot replicate as here it would out grow my yucca's in an instant.

Impressive place. Thanks for taking the time to take, process and upload all these images. It looks like you had a good time and a frolic on the beach to boot. Who was babysitting Andy?
