Echeveria San Francisco Succulents

Embarcadero Center, San Francisco

These Echeveria and Cyclamen are right outside my dentist’s office. Is that a good thing?

Just off the Embarcadero in San Francisco

I wonder if they got any of these San Francisco Cactus from us?

The Succulence San Francisco

If you haven’t been to Succulence in San Francisco then you must not live in San Francisco because if you live in San Francisco and read a succulent focused Cactus Blog like this one then you will have already had to have been to Succulence in Bernal Heights.

They have display windows where they get to put together nice creative displays. We don’t have windows at Cactus Jungle, just a gate.

Tequila Agave at Tres Agaves on Townsend St., San Francisco. We’ve sold them a number if Tequila Agaves but Hap doesn’t think this one is ours.

I hope they’ve reinforced the unreinforced brick building before they moved in.

I still go into San Francisco to see my dentist and what do I see but new Succulent bowls, mostly¬†Echeveria, at the Embarcadero Center. They look very freshly planted, so we’ll see how well they’ve done next time I visit – in 6 months of course.

San Francisco Succulents

Nice succulents. I see Echeveria and Echeveria and more Echeveria. Maybe a Pachyveria too.

It’s the SF Orchid Show and Sale!

No, not today. It’s next weekend. This here is a friendly reminder to put it on your calender.

It may not be a fancy poster, but it is a fancy show.

I see the Succulent Terrariums we made for our friends’ wedding at the de Young Museum came out nicely. Everyone was taking photos of the happy couple – so many cell phone cameras! – but I focused on the Succulent Terrariums. For you. Always for you!

Along the street in SOMA are debris boxes with tree ferns in single parking spaces. Nice!

The crew finished up a garden in San Francisco last week. Here’s a snapshot at the end of the day.

Where I get my hair cut on Market.


San Francisco12 Aug 2010 06:53 am

It was a short trip to the city to get a haircut, but I did catch these sedums doing really well in a window box on Market Street.

Clearly, I don’t get out enough.

It’s been awhile since I’ve been to the Castro, Market and Castro to be exact, and they’ve upgraded! With succulents and a stunning and healthy Leucadendron “Jester” too.

A lot of aeoniums, probably A. atropurpureum and A. subplanum. The groundcovers look like recent transplants of sedums and sempervivums and delospermas, but I didn’t take notes so I’m just checking out the photo like you, so if you have any other suggestions, let me know.

Here is what the corner looked like before all the added planters and seating and plants, from Google Streetview.
