Looks awesome both with and without the Graptopetalum! My purple hearts are supposed to be for zone 8 and up and they are starting to get invasive for me now. I never even expected them to survive a winter.

Thanks for sharing, your cactus bed looks beautiful!

Thanks Alex

There is still another avalanche of the stuff behind the Rostrata.

Definitely like the after...it showcases your agave much better.

Your cactus bed looks great either way but I'm sorry to say I liked it better before with the grapto and the iceplant. I like the look of a lush desert with no bare ground. I intentionally fill up all the bare spots in my cactus bed with portocola and ice plant.
