7th Street, Berkeley

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.

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.

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!

Very brightly orange colored blooms spikes on this streetside Aloe arborescens. Well-tended.

Crassula Gilman

Gilman Street, Berkeley

Hiding behind a fancy fence is a very bloomful Crassula ovata, better known in these parts as a Jade Tree.

A large and untidy Aloe arborescens in full bloom.

Aloe plicatilis

The Aloe plicatilis in my yard is as big as some of the specimens at the UC Botanic Gardens!

So many winter-blooming aloes…

Aloe arborescens Berkeley

Spruce Street, Berkeley

The Aloe arborescens are blooming up a storm all over Berkeley. Everywhere you turn there are those signature orange spikes. The hummingbirds must be going wild.
