I don't think I've ever seen hail that size, even here where it's more common. What a weird winter the W. Coast seems to be having... Love those glossy green leaves, is that fatsia or ??ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAnonymousFebruary 14, 2009The large-leaved plant came with the yard. I'm not familiar with fatsia but some interesting information here - http://www.floridata.com/ref/F/fatsia_j.cfm. The plant reminds of a much smaller version of Gunnera manicata - http://humanflowerproject.com/images/uploads/six-plants-gunnera475.jpg.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAnonymousFebruary 16, 2009You're totally right, it's not fatsia - I was thinking of fatshedera, but it's not that either. Does it look like the plant I saw in the SF Mission High gardens? http://greenwalks.wordpress.com/2008/12/02/sfs-mission-high-garden/ Someone said it's agapanthus but that doesn't seem right. Hm. I'm going to keep looking!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAnonymousFebruary 16, 2009Yes, it looks more like the plant at the SF Mission High Garden.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAnonymousFebruary 18, 2009The hail pictures are very pretty. I like the front step w/ plants and hail pic, as well as the fallen leaves, pink flowers and hail pic.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAdd commentLoad more...
