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?

Telegraph Ave., Berkeley

An Agave americana that will get too big for its location soon enough, plus some bonus scented geranium.

Nice big bloom stalk!


Agave flowers up close and personal

Here is our proposal for succulent baskets. Who is the proposal for? It’s a secret. But still, don’t you think we should get it? Of course you do. And we thank you for your support.

In this clever photo I chose to hide the Agave behind a fence. I could have walked a few feet and taken the picture without the fence in the way, but then you wouldn’t have seen the scaffolding. So those were the choices and this is the result.

Pardee St, Berkeley
Aeonium “Schwartzkopf”

This one has enough rosettes that it will pull through the bloom period just fine, but many would not make it alive after the flowering.

Aloe berkeley

Howe Street

Aloe reitzii? ferox? and a Cotyledon.

agave and penstemon stannage ave

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.

agaves stannage ave

Stannage Ave., Berkeley is well planted with succulents.

Agave attenuata well placed against the house to help it through the occasional freeze.

cotyledon stannage ave

Stannage Ave., Berkeley

I see we have a large Cotyledon, or maybe it’s a Kalanchoe, I don’t know, and it’s about to be in full bloom. The Bay Area is home to many blooming succulents, just this one happens to attract aphids, so watch for them.

aeoniums stannage ave

Stannage Ave., Berkeley

That’s a lot of potted Aeoniums hanging out on Stannage. Big Aeoniums, like maybe A. urbicum sized. And a big rock, too. I like big rocks.

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.
