Looks great. What are the two agaves in the bottom of the 7th pic? Also do you protect your inground agave? Cool monkey puzzle seedling. They grow into amazing hardy trees but are extremely slow growing. Your sabal looks really nice also.

Thanks statenisland, I will protect my agave only to prevent any damage they do not require it. The one pictured did not recieve any protection last year. the two agaves in pic 7 are (left)lophantha pup taken from my larger one last year and (right) lophantha splendida.

RE: Before and afters

Is the Agave lophantha splendida hardy?
I think I have the same one but im afraid to plant it in the ground.

Everything looks great! The weeping willow grew a ton and so did the trachys! Your yard is getting fuller and lusher with each update!
Thanks for sharing! Nice new additions also. Desert roses are one of my favorites, I pruned mine back so it hasnt made many blooms yet this summer (only the few before it was pruned back in May).
Thanks for sharing!

Statenisland, I believe you have regular strain of lophantha. Regardless, the splendidas are rated for Zone
7B and are growing outside at Plant Delights nursery. I will try to photogragh one next week when I go. I will post a photo of my reg. lophantha however they do become washed out from being in full sun. Which is why I believe all the varigates are on the market.

Jim- thanks, its going to get better cause im trying to keep up with you.

Thanks Alex, that willow really is growing fast. I was surprised to see blooms on my desert rose. I just raised the roots and repotted it. Figured it would be stressed for a while.

RE: Before and afters

US_Marine thanks, I use to have a larger variety of stuff. Unfortunately 60" of rain rotted alot of stuff. Several bananas are coming along but not ready to be pictured yet.

statenisland I have a post on the cactus and succulent forum now with photos of all my agaves. If your interested in trying one in the ground.
