In true conservation style, this business on Balboa Island had converted their fountain into a succulent garden.
This Delosperma sphalmanthoides, tufted ice plant. Hardy to 0F ! This one will be going into my rock garden.
I found it for sale in their garden shop, along with a couple more must haves. I always head to the garden shop at the end of the visit and rarely leave empty handed. Who can resist a few little pots of succulents.
Aloe marlotti with its distinctive spines on the center of the leaf. Just a little 2" pot so I don't know if it will ever flower for me. Both these aloes will stay in pots as will the aeonium.
Here's the rest of the collection now tucked away in the greenhouse and potting shed until these freezing temperatures go away. Meanwhile, I'm getting my planters cleaned out and my hanging baskets relined.
