Wordful & Wondrous Wednesday: Distinctive Flora

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

If you are a fan of succulents or any other unusual plants, Island View Nursery in Carpinteria is one of the best places to find all kinds of treasures in the succulent variety.  Pictured above is a few of their outdoor tables with various interesting specimens.

They also propagate them, as well as other interesting plants like Rex Begonias.  We bought two that we had not been acquainted with before.  Pictured above is the entry to one of the two greenhouses.

The next room is just as large and it is the home of more succulents of various colors and shapes.  It definitely takes more than one visit to see everything, and next time we are going to leave our wallets in the car.

 

Happy Wednesday!

I have become really enchanted with the rich variety of succulents that have come to market in recent years.  If there was a silver lining to the years of drought California endured, I think it may be the development of drought resistent plants.  Those are wonderful pictures, Alexandra.  I especially like that second one!

Hi Alexandra,

I haven't seen that much variety in quite awhile.  They must do a very nice business.

Alexandra loved all the choices and we have many of them because Diane & I are not good with plants and Succulents are so easy we do not need to do anything:)Endr

Good morning alexandra. I too love succulents. They grow almost everywhere and warm up desolate areas.
