Cazadero Garden

This weekend I was lucky enough to be invited to visit a garden in Sonoma County that I visit online all the time. Come along?

The garden is beautiful, but what really made this show so wonderful was the evolution from one photo to the next. Thanks for the lovely walk around.

Another scenic adventure you've taken us on. Lots of neat plants. Thanks for sharing with us.

Exactly what Kari said. I wish I could have expressed it half so well myself.

Great garden! Love the third photo. Wish I had as much rain as Cazadero gets..sigh. Thanks for taking us along on another garden tour. We should send you gas money ;-)

Talk about texture! This garden is just beautiful....

Denise said...

That is some serious spikage in this beautiful garden. And I see commenters reference previous tours, so to the back pages!

Did you have the feeling of being in love while you were there? Sheer bliss? Gorgeous!!!

Be still my beating heart!!! Spiky heaven!

I'd call this the garden of bold and strappy foliage. It is nice to see a lush and full garden.

Your pictures are beautiful! The colors and all that cool grassy stuff...what a feast for the eyes!

Love the phylica pubescens, so nice to see it mingled in with other plants in a mature state. A lot of the pictures I've seen of it usually has it by itself. It looks like it plays well with others :) I wish mine didn't die :(

I love all those spikes. Phormiums? A well executed garden, no wonder you visit online.

Can somebody tell me, in the 13th photo down, what is the name of the green spiky plant by the melianthus? Such a great combination.

thank you for all the nice comments. and thank you chuck for the great post. i wish i could have been there to share the garden with you. but it's also fun that you were able to see it on your own. it's quite interesting to see the garden through the eyes of another gardener/photographer.

rusted11, to answer your question about the plant with the melianthus, it's a beschorneria. most likely b. chiapensis. the leaf variation coloring is due to frost damage.

it's actually the best looking frost damage in the garden. the other damage looks like dead plants. it's almost time to remove, cut back, and welcome spring!!

have fun out there!
