A few highlights from 2005

Unknown Hypericum in bloom in Jully 2005
Outstanding substitute for manzanita in the humid east

The bark argues that this is H. lissophloeus but that species has needle-like leaves. I am guessing this is a hybrid of the aforementioned species and one with broad leaves.

October blooming Zauschneria
Blooms later and is more upright than the plant near the Yucca torreyi

Redder than its low growing cousin, not sure of the species.

Echinocereus polyacanthus bluish, lightly spined
Planted in rocks on the right side of driveway

This plant elevated in a cluster of rocks

A Beautiful Delosperma from Mesa Gardens

This plant had a hard time competing with the violets
