For this month's GBBD,I thought I'd focus on our cactus garden Last spring,when we took down that big-arse Schefflera,that died in the Great Freeze of '09,we were left with two huge stumps(one was from an old oak that died,the other from the schefflera).Because that area of the yard gets sun almost the entire day,and is unbearably hot in Florida summers,we decided to make a rock garden with cactii. The Pony-Tail Palm is one we've had for years.
Bear with me,here.I'm not good with the names of the different cactii.So here we go......... Anigozanthos,Kanga Orange.
This one I know,as I saved the tag.I love the way it looks against a backdrop of Cannas(which are red,by the way)and the St.Bernard's Lily.
(I knew this one,because my mother grew them in her rock garden)
I love the grey-ness of this one.
