Fouquieria fasciculata

#1

Post by Geoff »

This species is probably the quintessential Fouquieria for caudiciform collections as it very slow growing and has a wonderful, bulbous base... pretty pricey, too, though.

That last one looks terrific- but I would warn anybody that when you do that? Your plant is always on the border to going too dry,too wet,too cold. I've done that and you better never go away or if you depend on drip hope it never clogs. I know many people do that for shows and all that. But you are committed to much more effort to keep it healthy and even alive. You do need to be fanatical in a positive way of course. ::wink::

The plant has been staged in this shallow pot for a very long time. It seems to enjoy it, flowering every year. This year we were able to produce fruits. The roots have grown laterally and enjoy frequent waterings.

For the record, it isn't mine, but about 30 years.

Ever since I saw this post, I've wondered where it's located. My guess is BTA. Am I right?

It's in someone's yard in Phoenix. BTA gets a little chilly for most Fouqs.

I was searching facebook today and found the same photo. It was growing in the Picture Rocks area (just west of Tucson) in Bob Perrill's yard. In May he sold this 9 foot tall beauty to someone in California. Bob is known for his boojum growing. He had grown it for 20 years. I wish I knew what it sold for.
