Some Huntington Foliage
Above: the leaf imprints on Agave impressa look like white zippers.
Below: Aloes and Agaves just peaking out of long bunch grasses. I love the look.
The sleek lines of Agave vilmoriniana emerge from a froth of flower-dotted long grass.
A silver-white...uh...Helichrysum? Artemisia?
Foliage removed: the lawn in front of the Conservatory has been removed. We'll be watching to see what gets planted.

A variegated Acanthus!
Aloe rubroviolacea needs no flower to impress. Aloe dorotheae foliage turns bright orange with stress.
A small, young Bismarkia noblis, perhaps 12' wide. I'm wondering where to plant my own Bismarkia--they need more ground space when young than they do as they grow tall and lift their foliage higher and higher above ground.

And to end, an enormous Platycerium superbum growing on a dead palm trunk. For support, the dead palm trunk has been secured to the live palm trunk adjacent to it.
