Class at Portland Nursery on Division

Sorry it's been so long since I posted to the blog. What can I say. We've been very busy.
Tomorrow, if you're interested, you can join me at 1 pm for a presentation on growing succulent plants at the Portland Nursery on Division (9000 SE Division St. in Portland). Even if you've been to another class I've given, no two are the same as I try to direct my comments to the needs of the people in attendance. You can register for the class here.
And Echinopsis 'Barber Pole' flowered again this week.

x Gasteraloe 'Royal Highness'

No one seems to know who created this cross, but it's a classic. It's an intergeneric cross between an Aloe and a Gasteria, probably Aloe aristata and Gasteria 'Little Warty'.
We are busy preparing plants for the Oregon Cactus & Succulent Society Show & Sale, July 17-19 at Portland Nursery, 5050 SE Stark St. in Portland. If you're in the area, be sure to show up.

Heat Wave

We're having an early heat wave here...and a very dry June. Today it was 98 F and the same or higher is expected for tomorrow. We're just not used to this!
This is Lobivia 'Easter Bonnet', which was flowering recently.

Hosta flower

The hostas flower just about any time they feel like it, year around. Be that as it may, we're getting a wonderful bunch of flowers right now. They never cease to amaze!

Epicactus 'Sparkling Burgundy'

This picture is a little dark. I took it in the morning before the sun got to that part of the greenhouse. Another outstanding epi flower.
