Look what's happening at Lowe's

Just had to share with you my visit to Lowe's today!  Wow do they have the succulents!  And I scored on a beautiful echeveria that I have never seen before.  They had quite a variety so I plucked some others up too while I was at it!

Is it Christmas?

So first I have too show you this beauty!  I may go back and get this tomorrow.  It was in a bowl with other succulents and the color just jumped out at me.  I have never seen an aeonium so red before except in photos.  I want it!  Hee hee!  Oh and why didn't I buy it then?  Well......I had just gone to the eye Dr. where he had put all these crazy drops in my eyes.  My pupils were all dilated and I had to wear my sunglasses!  So I was just taking photos willy nilly!  It wasn't until I uploaded them that I went Aaaaah!


Here is the pot it was in!  The other succulents I have but for $22.98 I can always use more to put in other planters.  And this aeonium is a prize!

Echeveria 'Neon Breakers' hybrid 3

Then I came upon these tubs of huge echeverias!  They were hybrid's called Neon Breakers!  Had to have a couple of these for sure!

Echeveria 'Neon Breakers' hybrid blooms

Check out the bloom on Ms. Neon Breakers!  Wowza huh!  Love the color!

Aloe plicatilis 1

Beautiful pots of aloe plicatilis!  No stem yet but on there way!  I have two so I left these behind!

Beautiful succulent hanging basket

They had a couple of these beautiful hanging baskets!  $29.98.  I bet the folks in Southern Calif. would be going crazy to grab one of these!  Great price but I couldn't afford to get.  I can do myself for much cheaper.

Look at all the pretties at Lowes

Here are the racks of succulents.  You can see some hanging baskets and lots of other goodies.  On the otherside of these racks there were even more!  I went inside to get some spaghnum moss and found even more plantings.  Some very cute basket and other ideas.

So if you have time and some extra dough you might want to check out Lowe's.  It's pretty Sweet!

Tomorrow I am going to the Carmichael Cactus & Succulent Society Show & Sale.  I went last year and it was awesome.  I look forward to seeing great people and beautiful succulents.

Until next time remember:

It's Another Beautiful Day!

I can see why you had to buy that echeveria

Oh I've had those darn drops. Your eyes go all goofy. I don't like them very much:) That is wonderful when they put those succulent baskets together. I saw them at Home Depot for around 25 bucks....I was thinking about getting several for our place. Love the arrangements in your pots. Have fun!!

Awesome! Which Lowe's was this?

I stopped by the Home Depot on Truxel Road in Natomas yesterday and their succulent selection was nothing like this.

Oh my! Yes, I always find amazing succulents at Lowe's. Plus, I like they're all labeled with names, whereas Home Depot's succulent provider (Costa Farms here in Homestead, FL) does not.

These are all awesome, what a huge selection - I want to move to California! I'm running to Lowe's to see what they have! ;)

I found a Nananthus aloides and a "Ming Thing" at Lowe's last week, score! They did have a very nice selection of well-looked after succulents.

Your photos are absolutely stunning and are so inspirational! I share your "craziness" about succulents as well...what IS IT about them that is so AMAZING? I love them and plan to start creating living art with them soon :)

I work for Lowes as a Nursery specialist outside of Atlanta. We get our succulents from Altman Nurseries in California. Much better quality and variety. If your local store doesn't have them by now, they should very soon.

Hi Anonymous!
Thanks for your comment. I love shopping for succulents at Lowes. And Altman plants are the best! Most of the time you have a great variety. I need to check now since I've been gone a week on vacation!

Thanks again!

I work in the garden center at a Lowe's here in GA and as soon as they come in, I'm putting plants aside for purchase like a kid in a candy store! lol They truly do get the most beautiful succulents every spring.
