Red Conebush .. The Wave Garden - A Sneak Peek


The glory of South African plants .. bringing color to Bay Area gardens in Winter!

Here's a sneak peek of an amazing landscape created in the East Bay over the previous decade:
-- The Wave Garden --
filled with an incredible palette of plants and an exceptional hardscape.
Leucadendron salignum .. aka Summer Red Conebush is looking especially beautiful right now.

The garden takes in vistas of San Francisco Bay, Richmond Bridge, and Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County.
An in-depth feature on the Wave Garden appears on: Alice's Garden Travel Buzz.

    Rather bizarre that it took so long for me to visit!

  3. That red cone bush is startling and wonderful!


  4. Hi Esther, Bom and Byddi!

    There's nothing quite like the color range of leucadendrons to knock your socks off. It's great that they're becoming popular choices in California gardens.

  5. I'll have to keep an eye out for that leucadendron--It's stunning!
