Dudleya “Frank Reinelt” is a coastal variety of D. caespitosa, so you know it will grow well for you, assuming you are coastal too, since we are the Bay Area, so named after the coastal feature that defines it.
I’m wondering why the succulents on this plant have gotten so small in size…the pant used to produce very large “blooms”….
Any idea? Thank you Brian
What you have on the ends of each branch is a rosette, not a bloom – if they bloom they will form giant pyramids of small yellow flowers. It’s kind of surprising when it happens.
Anyway, the rosettes shrink up in summer because the Aeoniums are winter-growers from the Mediterranean with a climate very similar to ours – all winter rains. They should start getting bigger again in October.
Agave ocahui are astonishing, with a very vigorous terminal spine just hanging out there. That red on the tips is painted on. I used the latest in plant paint technology to individually get right up close to the most dangerous spines around and very delicately hand paint just the spines with no drips at all anywhere. So vibrant! You can wipe that color off if you like, it just takes a little spit polish. Or wait for the rains and the paint is actually made from succulent fertilizer so it will run off into the ground and provide a really great fertilizer for you this coming winter! This is what I do for you.
But just this one plant. Not any of the others. If you want this one painted agave ask for it at the store, and hopefully nobody has already bought it. It’s in the back, so you’ll have to ask. I only told Jeremiah and Kel where it is so you’ll have to ask for them. They know.
