Cabin fever set in so had to run over to Plant Delights for a small shopping trip.

Thanks Greg, wish it was spring but there us yet another polar votex moving in. So I am heading to the beach for a week. We will see about zone pushing when I get back. Well with exception to the agave Albopilosa which will never see ground.

Nice score with the albopilosa! I saw one at Jordi's recently. =) I'd like to see pix when the ends open up/feather out!
What are the names of the others?

Enjoy your beach time!

Thanks rosemarie, I cannot wait for it to open up either. And to think one survived in ground at Plant Delights. Maybe I can score some true seed soon enough.

The large agave is salmiana var ferox ' logan calhoun', the dark leaf thing is Ecomis 'dark star' and as for the cactus I can't remember right now.lol But it is rated for zone 7b so should be interesting.
