terraced Spanish Colonial Revival house & garden

For those of you who enjoy gawking at houses and their gardens as much as I do, here’s a look at the house that belongs with this post from September 2014. I don’t think I looked up much from the ground level in that 2014 post.

I do have a tendency to neglect to step back and get the big picture.

Nice to see the anigozanthos in bloom. Imagine those kangaroo paws red or orange. I think the straw yellow is perfect. Because of this garden, I’ve been planting every sesleria I can get my hands on, including Sesleria ‘ Greenlee’ and S. autumnalis ‘Campo Verde.’

There might be a short road trip in the works for my weekend. Enjoy yours!

P.S. The Huntington Botanical Garden’s International Succulent Introductions 2015 catalogue is now available.  Just save one of the Cuban agaves for me!

  1. Perfection. I love this style of architecture, and the plantings complement it so well.

    On the other hand, orange would link to the color of the roof. I remember that house, I love that house, I want that house.

    I love seeing wide shots of this property – the garden is a perfect complement to the house. Thanks for sharing the Huntington’s catalog too – I’ve been looking for that Albuca for the past year!
