I read over there that you will plant it with either cactus or other succulents.
What plants do you have available to use Hetty?

The potted specimen in Debra Lee Baldwin's book is to die for.

I'm sorry Hetty, I didn't even look to see where that was. I was just looking for the site that had the best photos. Sticking tongue out
Here is a place in Calif. that has it. http://www.gosucculent.com/cgi-bin/mivavm?/Merchant2/merchan...
Also you could ask Sue if she knows of a nursery that would carry it. She has been to so many places.

Hetty, I'm late seeing this thread but just wanted to say I'm drooling over your pot! Drooling Even better is the price! Thumbs up I'm not sure if you saw the link in one of other threads here but there are some gorgeous combinations on this site.. http://www.petite-pots.com/ I've saved a few of the ideas to pass along to my "non-gardening" son in Phoenix. He's always asking for suggestions and I think with the selections he should be able to find in his area these could be fairly easy for him. Whistling

I kind of randomly planted it with an Elephant bush (Portulacaria afra) that spills over the edge, a blooming Adenium and a Euphorbia 'Ascot' in the back, and a Cholla cactus spilling over the other side. I should post a picture, I guess!

I would love to see how it ended up Hetty. I forgot all about that container.

Debbie that is a great link for ideas on small containers. Sure a lot of eye appeal in the arrangements. Thumbs up

You could put a Yucca on its own in your special pot and have other combo in smaller pots like a collage
