Berkeley Succulents

Succulent Roof

Hi there, just want to share a sight from a walk yesterday. This is one of those free little libraries, but with an awesome roof composed entirely of succulents, on both sides. It’s off Colusa in North Berkeley.

Pretty neat, eh?

Big Blue Succulent Leaves

That’s an Echeveria “Blue Dude” right there! It’s an older style hybrid, so you know it’s back in fashion now. Hurry before it cycles back out.

Berkeley Yucca Garden

Heinz Street, Berkeley

A nicely blooming Yucca in the Aquatic Park Gardens with a beautiful red Leucadendron in front. Sweet!

Echeveria Garden 

That’s a beautiful Echeveria subrigida in full bloom! 

Dowling Pl, Berkeley 

Snowy Pudding 

This gorgeous Echeveria should be called “Snowy Pudding”

But no. It’s called “White Rose” 

That’s not right. 

😉 

Aeonium in Bloom 

Russell St, Berkeley 

Aeonium arboreum cultivar in full bloom with lots of little yellow flowers! 

Blooming Echeveria 

Echeveria glauca is the litte blue succulent with the big orange bloom stalk.

It’s small, it’s between the sidewalk and a brick wall, but it’s all succulent garden.

An Agave Grows in Berkeley

Agave americana

Alcatraz Ave., near the Berkeley/Oakland border.

Looks like they left just enough space for this monster to grow full size before it impedes on the sidewalk and stabs a young bicyclist riding by.

Agave americana on Channing Way in Berkeley. In the sidewalk strip? That’ll outgrow that so fast! Hopefully there aren’t any kids riding bikes near there.

Mixed Succulents

Wow that’s a lot of filtering going on in that photo of a mixed succulent terrarium with some sand design action too. In case you were wondering, I overused Snapseed in that there photo. Enjoy!

Here’s a slightly less filtered photo of a Sarracenia minor. But only slightly less filtered! Shock.
