Brief Succulent Tapestry Meditation
I count twelve Echeveria subridgidas, eleven 'Evening Glow' Echeverias, seven Echeveria agavoides, five 'Karas Choice' Agaves, twenty two Aloe juvenna, four Agave...'Burnt Burgundy', is it? Add up how much that would cost, even wholesale. And this is just one bit of the planting bed. A spectacular succulent tapestry, well designed, requires a big budget or a few years of serious focused propagation. You don't even want to know how much those gorgeous polished stone pieces cost (they are trickle fountains). The river rocks are cheap, at least.
Guess I'd better start propagating a little less casually.
Update. I found a few more photos that Beloved took almost exactly a month ago with his little point-and-shoot. Two Agaves added since then, where the red Xs are...
Here's the area on the far end. Nice Agave guiengola 'Creme Brulee' there.
