Wow, wish I can come across a nursery like that. Most of them here have zero to very little succulent collections.

Greg,i don't need a napkin,i need a towel i'm drooling so much..Those are absolutely AWESOME!!!

Whoever put those together sure has an eye for color and textures.In that 2nd picture are those grey plants with the pink edges and getting ready to bloom pink flowers,are those Graptopetalums(sp)?? I have one of those that has 3 heads or whatever they are called and is also getting ready to bloom.It's one of my favs.
Thanks for sharing those,i'll have to go back again and again to have another look.

Love to see fabulously grown plants! Thanks for sharing!


 o
RE: Pictures of a Nursery I visited today in New Port beach:

Laura, fabulously grown indeed, I notice that cacti & succulents love the climate at the beach, seems like all the plants know where their at.

RE: Pictures of a Nursery I visited today in New Port beach:

Heres another nice arrangement, I believe the tall plant with the greenish grey leafs is an olive tree sprout, they had some Olive trees mixed with alot of cacti & succulents and I guess they would be comparable growers.

Beautiful place Greg. Nothing like that around here. I believe that is Agave Creme Brulee in the last picture.

RE: Pictures of a Nursery I visited today in New Port beach:

This is one of my favorites in the agave family. I really enjoy just walking around this place because it stirs my creative ability. I hope you guys enjoyed the pictures, have a good day.

Misselle, thank you, I believe the one your asking about is the Aeonium sunburst.

newbie question: when you see a gorgeous bunch of different succulents crowded together for sale in a pot, how do you know they weren't all crammed in there JUST YESTERDAY- and is that bad? isn't that kind of false advertising? wouldn't some people buy it under the impression that they would stay looking like that? thanks, min


 o
RE: Pictures of a Nursery I visited today in New Port beach:

Hi min 3 , I don't know about false advertising but it sure looks good and wet a while you can propagate and start another pot of plants and another and another...
I've bought many and after time repot.

RE: Pictures of a Nursery I visited today in New Port beach:

it's like any other display -
-clothing with all the 'right' pieces & accessories that you may not want/to be able/interested to buy...
-furniture, again with all the right accessories...
-you buy just one or very few-and it doesn't look the same!
But it's great for ideas/inspiration, and definitely helps the sales. And you just may be able to replicate over time...

What a nice color for a back drop, any cacti or succulent would fair well next to this color.
