I recently got all my new plants in the ground so I thought it was a good time to document my newest plant collection in a post. The largest group have found a home in the succulent bed in front of our garage.
|In retrospect, I planted this bed more sparsely than I'd like, using too many small succulents. As many of the Mangaves will develop some girth in time, I'm hoping their addition will go a long way to filling in the space.|
|Manfreda maculosa, a parent of many of the xMangaves, also occupies a pot in this area|
There's a second group of xMangaves in the dry garden area on the north side of the house.
|I have plans to fill in the gaps between the 5 Mangaves here with other succulents|
A few others are scattered about the garden at the moment.
Since most of the plants arrived in small nursery pots within the past year, they're all still relatively small but several of them are already producing pups so I hope my collection will grow in size over the next few years. And, hopefully, local garden centers will begin to offer a broader range of choices as well.
What plants are grabbing your attention at the moment?
