Succulent San Francisco


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.

San Francisco Succulents

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.

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.

Wedding Succulent Terrariums

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!

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

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.
