I have this pretty large area of rock bed in the front of my house, with some large collector's boulders my dad I picked up some places years ago. I always thought it needed something more than rocks and a single gnarly-growing Texas sage bush, so late last fall/this winter, I have been steadily adding cactus and succulents that I thought would not only improve the appearance of the rock bed, but were also hardy enough to take that north wind during the winter- I am pleased to say that so far it's been a 100% success! Here's a few of my favorites:
Old cluster of mixed Faucaria
HAWORTHIA TIIIIIIIIIIME! :-D
Haworthia Mirabilis v. Badia
This one could be any one of several
These two are Retusa hybrids, one is a White Ghost
My favorite, and oldest Haworthia, the Cooperii, may or may not be a v. Truncata, I really can't tell the difference between them
I have a lot more plants in the bed, will post them all over time. I have some big ones I am till planning out.
Happy Spring all!
