March 2016: What's Blooming At The Huntington?
Uhh...erm...Primula malacoides (Thanks for the ID, Forest!)
Camellia Yamato-Nishiki, "higo style" flower
Uhh...this was a popular ground cover in Southern California for a while, back when water was more plentiful. Persicaria capitata, thanks to Close To Home for the ID.
New growth on groomed pines in the Japanese-style garden
Spring bulbs in the rose garden
Clivia in the subtropical garden
Aloes in the Desert Garden. The mass of orange/yellow is Aloe camperi 'Cornuta'.
Golden barrel cactus in a mass of Crassula bloom stems
The shephard's crook shapes of Echeveria agavoides
Aloe africana again, up close
Achmea recurvata (Thank you Roger for the ID!)
Oxalis gigantea. Yes, that's a six foot tall Oxalis.
Agaves with an unreal plume of Yucca flowers in the background.
Wow. More Yucca flowers in the background
Some sort of ice-plant type thingy. Drosanthemum speciosum 'Pele'. (Thanks again for the ID, Jane!)
Every time we go the entrance garden has changed slightly
There were a lot of small succulents in this spot last time. Now there are Layia platyglossa and Eschscholzia californica, California native wildflowers
Hesperaloe parviflora 'Brakelights'
Kniphofia with Echium candicans in the background
Echium candicans with Eucalyptus 'Moon Lagoon' foreground right
And that Yucca one more time
What a great way to celebrate the Vernal Equinox!
