Yucca Do summer sale

Yucca Do in Giddings, Texas is one of the premier succulent nurseries in the country. Owner Carl Schoenfeld and Wade Roitsch have made many collecting trips to Mexico and other countries and have introduced selections (especially agaves) that nobody else has.

On Tuesday I received an email announcing their big summer sale. Until August 25th, almost 200 different plants are discounted from 10-50%. Since I can’t resist a good sale, I clicked through to their web site right away to see what goodies I might find. Before I knew it, I had a shopping cart full of plants, including some cool agaves like Agave parrasana ‘Fireball’ and Agave ‘Royal Spine’.

But succulents aren’t all Yucca Do carries. They also sell drought-tolerant perennials and even palms, shrubs, trees and vines. For example, I also ordered a compact cenizo (Leucophyllum frutescens ‘Compacta’), a silver-leafed shrub I’ve admired many times at the UC Davis Arboretum.

I’ve bought from Yucca Do several times before and I’ve always been happy with what I received, so I have no hesitations recommending them. Check out their sale—you might find something you can’t live without.
