I think this crowded beauty is Aloe conifera. (But then again, I just can’t tell.) I bought it at a Ruth Bancroft Garden plant sale. It used to have a very complementary Euphorbia tirucalli next to it, but I always lose that particular species of Euphorbia when it gets cold. Maybe I’ll get more and try again. Or maybe I’ll never allow it in the garden again. Maybe I’ll have some breakfast now.
Some recent semps, jovibarba, orostachys, etc for you. I need to get on the ball and photograph more of them. They’re all starting to get big and fat and turn colors.
Love this warm weather streak. We’re expecting to enjoy temperatures between 81 and 89 degrees this week.
This weekend I got started on transplanting dozens of plants from one of my favorite beds in the back to all the other beds around the garden. We’re starting work on a remodel in a couple of weeks, and all those plants need new places to live. (What am I going to do? There isn’t any room!)
Neighbors who don’t know what I’m really up to think I’m bringing new plants home. I can tell exactly what they’re saying to themselves: Crazy… Needs help… Needs meds… Don’t make eye contact.
Anyway, the pics above are of that peanut cactus I wrote about a few weeks ago. It was the first thing I moved from that bed. And a week later it’s blooming. I love that plant.
