Incredible show of succulent secrets appeared this week at the L.A. Arbo. Who knew a row of lowly yucca-looking plants were really the exotic Puya berteroniana from the Andes region. Until they decide to send up flower shoots, desert plants remain ignored and castigated.
Their strange color speaks to the strangely sudden passing of the irrepressible and irreplaceable Chuck Colson (1931 - 2012).
HOW will this misshapen, hapless world survive without him?
Another Arbo development: the sudden appearance of new product display stands, both on the giftshop patio and inside; a wonderblend of art, design, discipline and excellence. The sudden transformation astounds. Simple, yet grand.
