June Subscription

June Subscription

First of all, I’d like to file a complaint letter to management! How in the heck is it already JUNE?!?! I can’t change the calendar, but I can bring some fun, bright plants to your summer garden. 

Aeonium kiwi

First on our list is the bright and happy Kiwi Aeonium. This little plant looks like a little ray of sunshine. Aeonium are actually winter growers, but kept out of harsh full sun conditions, they can still continue to prosper even in summer. Bright light will help them keep their yellow glowing color. Do handle your plant carefully.  This particular Aeonium does bruise quite easily. You will see black makes where it may have been handled. This is just aesthetics and not harmful to your plant. 

Cactus

Our pokie addition is Thelocactus rinconensis. This cactus originates in Mexico in the Coahuila and Nuevo León regions. This plant does like moderate water and will bloom soft plane pink flowers in late spring/early summer. Plant is a gritty mix to allow for good quick drainage.

Pickle plant

Up next is Kleinia stapeliiformis, commonly known as the pickle plant. This interesting plant has long pencil-like stems with purple-green patterns and soft spines along the sides. The stems can reach up to 10” tall and, when in bloom, will boast a bright orange flower. They will multiply by sending shoots up from the roots, so give your plant ample room to grow.

Finally, as always there’s something a little extra in the box. This month is a couple of lightly rooted cuttings of sedum shooting star. They are so miniature and sweet and would be a great plant for those of you looking to start a fairy garden!

Happy Planting PEEPS!!
