Always such a pleasure to look at your wonderful collection, Geoff. Thanks for posting all the delights!

RE: Colors of later Winter

Wow. Hard to fathom being able to have such a landscape. And the Aeonium 'Voodoo' is incredible. I was looking at an online listing for a Mangave Blood Spot earlier today, and gosh, that plant is beautiful.

RE: Colors of later Winter

Wow.... They are all beauties but the 1st one gets the grand prize , I've been trying to get my hands on one of those, So where do you live Lol.. I'm sure you also belong to cacti and succulent Annonimous (for addicts) who are hooked on succulents, and congratulations to you Lzrddr. People who don't collect cacti & succulents would even stop to notice your collection I'm sure right cause they are a conversation piece for sure. Enjoy them. Greg

*SWOON* Another garden of envy! Just stunning. Absolutely stunning. Like many others, I find that with each glorious photo I'm saying to myself, "Oh, I have to get me one of those plants!" But, for me, the one that really made me stop in my tracks is the Blood Spot. Now I must find one.

Thanks so much for sharing!

Geoff,

I'm going back to the pictures again and again trying to decide which is my favourite, and I keep getting different answers. Thanks for sharing the rainy season in a succulent fashion with us.

Awesome! Weird that it's raining south of the grapevine. It's sunny and warm today in the San Joaquin Valley. Usually it's the other way around. Great job!

RE: Colors of later Winter

Lz, Wow, beautiful succulents. Your variegated Agaves are gorgoues.
I especially like your variegated Beaucarnea. Do you have any idea of its age?

My other favorites are: Echeveria Doris and Mangave Blood Spot. Is Mangave Blood Spot a small succulent or grow tall?
The colors on your Mangave are fabulous. Toni

PS. I see some plants in pots. Since I don't know your location, are all in containers or some in-groun?

All lovely plants, but the variegated A. attenuata is to swoon over. Want want want!

RE: Colors of later Winter

most plants are in the ground. Agave attenuata is in a pot, though several reasons. Easy to move it into the back yard if there is something going on the in neighborhood and I don't want to get it stolen... and also it gets cold here (down to 25F a few years ago) and that plant is a total wimp when it comes to frost. By the way, I have seen those variegated Agave attenuatas as Lowes several times over the last few years... pretty affordable, too! This one was a sucker I got from a friend that just ended up being a great specimen. And now it, too, has a sucker on it... cool.

RE: Colors of later Winter

Lz, I don't know where you live, but here in IL, very few rarities are sold.

We've been to Lowe's twice, 'two different stores.' What a disappointment.

I can honestly say, the last 20+ years, I've never once seen a variegated Agave for sale. Our grocery store had a green leaf Agave in a 3", decorative pot, approximately 10-yrs-ago. That was the first and last time I've seen Agaves. Believe me, Lz, I hunt for rare plants. lol.

Anyway, you have some true beautys. Toni

I wish that i could have those colors in winter, everything here is dead :(
