It's funny, but I am always amazed when someone gives me a plant. I can't help but think of them every time I see the plant or water it. Here are a few of the latest. I call them Friendship Plants, but there's a nice little book called Pass Along Plants filled with the same sentiment.
Perhaps you have your own set of Friendship Plants in your garden.
This Yucca recurvifolia is from Sam and Nancy at our church. We usually look west to find Yuccas, but amazingly, this one is native to Alabama and Georgia. It takes the heat and dry conditions well and has blue green foliage and soft leaves.
This is from Cindy at My Corner of Katy...it's a species new to me in the Ruellia family. She said it might take over so be careful. I don't mind a bit! :-)
This is also from Cindy at My Corner of Katy. It's one of the most beautiful Agaves in my garden.
I couldn't remember what she called it, but I found some images online that seem to be a match:
Agave lophantha 'Splendida'
Thanks again, Cindy!
This giant Cycas revoluta has a funny story. Wes and Lisa were clearing their front yard and wanted to know if I wanted a cycad. I was imagining a small plant when in fact it was 4 feet across! It's doing fine after 6 years.
This Tradescantia has outlived the friend who gave it to me. She passed away from cancer 4 years ago, but her flower still graces my garden. I call it Jenee's flower.
I take it in each winter. I dare not lose it.
Thanks for stopping by.
