Hi there and Happy Fall to you! Hopefully, you’re still finding time to garden. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area gardening and planting is year round with mild winter temperatures making this possible. Today is October 12, 2020 and our business is off to plenty of planting especially in the next few months of Indian Summer, where particularly in SF, we get some of our warmest temps. In this post I hope you enjoy seven statement succulents from the iconic Agaves to the very sweet Aeoniums. With striped or marbled leaves, variegation gives you many options in plant design, foremost, is specimen action, which if you’re on a budget, highlighting a lovely plant (containers too) is like adding a beautiful garnish to a cooked dish.
