Succulent extravaganza!

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Last saturday I had the pleasure of attending the Succulent Extravaganza at Succulent Gardens in Castroville. Succulent Gardens is a supplier to shops like Flora Grubb in SF, DIG gardens in Santa Cruz, and Half Moon Bay Nursery. The entire growing grounds were open for viewing and it seemed like practically everything was for sale. Greenhouse after greenhouse of exotic and unusual succulents and cacti. I was in heaven! I took tons of photos, so here are a few in no particular order.

Deep maroon mound, so pretty!

Cool planter.

Stacked stone wall. Can you see the clusters of echeveria in the gaps?

I loved this little guy.

Flower pods.

Vegetated swale.

Nice, bright green rosettes.

I came home with one of these! It fades from pink to orange, to green to purple. Aloe marlothii

Vertical gardening display

Along with the Aloe marlothii, I also came home with this:

Look at this purple beauty! Graptopetalum amysthystenum
I don't know what this one is called, but isn't it cute?!
Take a look at their website if you are looking for retailers in the bay area or to hear more about their events!
