Yesterday I decided to go nuts on our Cotyledon orbiculata var. oblonga (I think that’s what it is). In the shot above I’d already cut out as much plant as you see remaining. I’ve always liked it, but we needed to make room for some cool new plants so I ripped the entire plant out. That whole region was getting a bit funkified anyways.
For the relatively small space I re-did it took me forever. I do not recommend squatting in a hunched down position like that for hours if you want to wake up the next day without some serious leg/back soreness.
We had a big chunk of driftwood hanging around not doing anything, so I decided to use it as a little edger in the front.
Six hours later it’ was done (I took a lot of breaks). I still have no idea what that other slightly bluer Cotyledon is hanging out behind the Coreopsis gigantea is. Behind and slightly to the left of the bowling pin is our brand new Aeonium nobile from Jenn at Dirty Girl Gardening. Matti brought home a couple freaky crested things including the Aeonium ‘Sunburst’ and Echeveria ‘Doris Taylor’ that are jammed in there as well. Click on the pic for a closer look.
