Ok, there's more than one thing blooming in the garden right now. But it is stuff I've covered before and I don't want to get too repetitive here. There is one plant in the garden that is blooming that I'm excited about though. I recently put in an order to Yucca-Do Nursery and included this Echeveria defractens on a whim. I'm really liking in so far!
The fiery orange blooms really grab your attention. The 3" rosettes are not super showy but a nice deep brown-y purple that I think will darken in the summer with more sun and less water. When I received the plants in the mail, they had bloom stalks on them and all the leaves that grow from those stalks had been knocked off. I had the foresight to save all those little leaves and sprinkle them over soil in the pots. Now I've got lots of Echeveria difractens babies on the way!
