Scintillating Silvery Foliage

I’m simply crazy for this luscious icy blue palm, Brahea armata.
In this garden designed by Berkeley Cal. landscape architect David Feix, it is surrounded by some outrageously beautiful deep dark purple bromeliads and a nesting of dinner plate size aeoniums.

The surrounding tapestry of plants is rich in texture, color and tropical ambiance.

David has a unique way of turning the common back yard into a fantastic subtropical retreat sanctuary..

Fire up the hot tub, I’m ready.
