Sorry it took so long to write descriptions for this page. I would like to say I've been so busy with work and the garden, but I think it was more just being lazy.
Idaho the land of variety
Looking east from my yard.
at work in one of the holding ponds. We counted as many as 50, looks like the numbers are coming back. These used to be a rare sight in Idaho.
These are a few hybrids yuccas started from seed. These were created by my friend Tim on the east coast.
Yucca filimentosa x with Yucca elata = Yucca filata's
The single one too the left is known as "big mama"
I have high hope for this one.
Lately I have been looking for hybrid desert plants, hoping that they may take the cold better?
Opuntia engelmannii x with Opuntia basilaris
I think this will be my fourth attempt with this barrel.
I have had better luck with the big barrels.
A mealy bug infeasted Echinocereus triglochidiatus (white sands).
The only thing I have found to work on these bugs is vegetable oil!
My great big Opuntia englemannii pad
And one more hybrid,
Cylindropuntia acanthocarpa x biglovii
