A few photos from the nursery today.

So happy we have cooler weather this week,  and the beginning of fall is just a few days away.   A few photos from the nursery this morning:

Sarracenia leucophylla ‘Tarnok’

Manfreda u. ‘Mint Chocolate Chip’

Mangave ‘Spotty Dotty’

Agave albopilosa ‘Tufts’

xMangaves @ Peacock Horticultural Nursery

Mangave ‘Moon Glow’

We are crazy for xMangaves here at Peacock Horticultural Nursery. xMangaves are a cross between an Agave and a Manfreda. xMangaves tend to grow much faster than Agaves, and they are polycarpic, so they will flower and set seeds many times before dying. We have many of the new crosses available here @ Peacock Horticultural Nursery, including xMangave ‘Moonglow’ in the photo. As well as many more, including: xMangave ‘Inkblot, xMangave ‘Jaguar’, xMangave ‘Spotty Dotty’ and xMangave ‘Man of Steel’. And, more new varieties will be available soon. xMangave, like their parents, do not like wet feet in winter, so best planted in a well draining raised bed, or also will do great in pots.

Drizzled @ Peacock Horticultural Nursery this morning.
