New rock I dug up just in time for the trichocereus hybrid to bloom. Nice

Amazing, these were huge limbs I salvaged off huge plants we have on the other side of our property. Notice the June beetle! I could not believe my luck.

Im pretty sure this is the echeveria peacockii... but it was not labeled.
This was labeled echeveria 'surf'... I got it at walmart haha.
My current indoor collection.. or part of it I guess.
Also if anyone can tell me what the cactus with the pink flower is at the top. It was inherited basically and thus im not sure what it is.

Thanks for sharing!

|First of all, welcome to ATP and to the Cactus forum. Always fun to see where others interests lie. |
I am jealous of anyone who can plant in ground but even more so when I see the delightful blooms as a result.
I am no help on IDing your inherited cactus but will say it is lovely. Kristi

|That is beautiful. I wish I lived in your zone. You have a gorgeous garden.|

|Thank you everyone! It all took me alot of time landscaping, planting... re-planting, its all worth it when others enjoy it! |
I'm learning just how fortunate I really am to grow this type of garden. Our town is on a mesa about 15 miles off the pacific coast, an area known for its duned beaches (Oso Flaco, Guadalupe, Nipomo, Oceano, and parts of Pismo Beach). The sandy soil plus the climate are perfect for cacti and succulents. However, drive 10 minutes east and the soil quickly turns to adobe clay. These areas of clay and volcanic rock are perfect for wine grapes though

Rebutia Muscula. Native to Bolivia. Beautiful blooms. I actually was lazy and didnt take pictures of its best bloom of 5 or 6 at the same time

Cant remeber the name of this one off the top of my head but I have the container it came in outside for reference. Something "Blue Giant"
I'll have to check this one as well. I want to say pachy'something' "powder puff" 'exotica'.

senecio mandralisca 'blue chalk fingers' and bloom
Another inherited plant. Not sure. Its a big blue echeveria that sometimes gets pink highlights if the sun is just right. Its very faint though.
Aloe brevifolia I think. Another one pass me down.
Couple more of 1 of my favorites. The echeveria 'surf'.

Another of my faves xGraptosedum 'vera higgins' 'alpine glow'
Not sure about this big rosette. It was not labeled, any ideas?
Red Yucca, the humming birds love it.

Random mixed pot.
Dunno what this one is, iv seen something alot like it on some of the nursery websites though.
Sedum nussbaumerianum 'coppertone' Perfect for my "green/yellow on black" theme in this patch.
Jun 29, 2013 9:54 PM CST
senecio vitalis doesnt grow nearly as fast as the madralisca but is a nice looking plant once it gets going.
Agave 'quad color' such a stunner.
and some offshoots to boot.

Jade, one of many many cuttings iv taken off huge mother plants we have. Its bomb proof, but this is what it looks like cut low and good liquid fertilizer every 2-3 weeks.
I dont understand why places dont have labels for half their cactus, but at least this was healthy at purchase from the local hardware store.
sedeveria hybrid 'harry butterfield' 'supper burro's tail'
Jun 29, 2013 10:12 PM CST
graptoveria "debbie" Thats one pretty debbie! The ants are herding aphids like crazy on this one I dont know why, there are at least 6 things blooming next to it and they are all just fine. Must have some extra suger content or something? I duno.
Another anonymous cactus from the hardware store. I dont know whats going on, if its supposed to have yellow/orange highlights, its got fur and what looks like and feels like cat whiskers coming out the top. Seriously strange and cool.
graptoveria 'california sunset' living up to its name!

Graptopetalum paraguayense Ghost plant... love these guys
echeveria peacockii blooming like crazy
