Linking up with Loree at Danger Garden to share a few of my favorite plants in the garden for April. These also happen to be some of the newest plants.
Echeveria 'Black Knight' from a recent visit to The Antique Rose Emporium in Brenham, Texas.
Goes nicely in this thrift shop ceramic pot already on hand.
The next two are from the San Antonio Cactus and Xerophyte Society Annual Show and Sale which I attended yesterday. It's free and still going on through Saturday at the San Antonio Garden Center.
Opuntia vulgaris variegata has been on my list for a while for the pattern and color. It's not entirely cold hardy so I'll find a suitable pot for it (eventually). That "arm" on the left popped off just after this photo so I already have another start of it.
Agave Parryi 'Lime Streak' just stood out with the great color. Looks like a good match for the opuntia (above). Small and slow growing it will have to stay in a container planting for a while.
In my Spectacular Sophora Secundiflora post in March I promised to link it to My favorite plant.., I was distracted by a trip to visit family that week and forgot so I'm adding it for April. Better late than never!
