I stopped by wanting to find out what this is.
From: Janice

 

Janice,

That is a Dasylirion wheeleri, and we do have a number of Dasylirions, including that one, in stock.

Available in Berkeley!

Hello,
My husband built two handsome and modern bamboo planters to stage our yard when we put our Berkeley home on the market. They do not work in our new yard so we are selling them and wondered if you or anyone you know might be interested in buying them? The pots have never been used, other than for staging, and are:

  • Handcrafted from Redwood that was sealed for exterior usage.
  • Built with weather resistant, galvanized metal
  • Designed for self-watering
  • Lined with Pond Liner
  • Built for bamboo but can also be used to plant vegetables, flowers or other plants
  • Larger pot is: 115″ x 31 1/2″; 31 1/2 ” high
  • Smaller pot is: 62″ x 31 1/2

Please see a photo attached.

Page Street, Berkeley

Cotyledon orbiculata in full bloom. Now that’s a nicely shaped shrubby and chalky succulent, just like your mother used to make.

And in case you don’t also follow me on instagram, here’s the instagrammed and filtered version that appeared there.

Which do you like better?

Iris hexagona. Being a water plant we don’t carry it at our drought-tolerant cactus and succulents nursery. Yet. But maybe someday.

opuntia stannage ave

Stannage Ave., Berkeley

This cactus is a Opuntia. Probably an Opuntia tuna-blanca which will get large orange flowers and large red edible cactus fruit. Tunas for everyone! Delicious.

Stannage Ave., Berkeley

A nice garden with Agave attenuata and a red-flowering Penstemon. Nice mounds.

Just kidding! The Bay Area stops at the Berkeley border for my Berkeley Succulent posts.

crassula stannage ave

Stannage Ave., Berkeley

Crassula tetragona is the Pine Tree Succulent. And here we have a nice grove of them with a ground cover of oxalis.

ut gnome page street

I found this gnome from Texas on Page Street in Berkeley. Why is there a UTexas garden gnome in our neighborhood? I do not ask questions, I only take the pictures. Where’s my UMich gnome????

aeonium kains ave

Kains Ave., Berkeley

I see a large-headed Aeonium “Sunburst” in front of a whole mound of Aeonium heads. Lots of Crassula, some Agave, and a Lemon Tree. Delicious! Too bad its all hiding behind a well-stacked rock wall.

cotyledon and aeoniums kains ave

Kains Ave., Berkeley

That’s a Cotyledon to the left, a Crassula in the front, and numerous dark Aeoniums to boot. Nice garden!

cycad camelia street

Camelia Street, Berkeley

This lovely and giant and very old and large Cycad is the ever popular Sago Palm. Not a palm, did I mention its a Cycad? Cycas revoluta. But you knew that already, didn’t you.

Camelia Street, Berkeley

Spurge, probably Euphorbia characias, and Artemesia. Sulphur yellow blooms? Check.
