A toy dump truck has to be the most unusual planter I’ve ever seen, and this golden barrel cactus looks right at home in it. I spotted this playful combo parked on the front lawn of an Allandale home yesterday.
Towering on either side of it were a pair of gigantic green agaves, about 5 feet tall and wide—a nice change from the popular silver Agave americana.
Anyone know the variety? Update: Agave salmiana var. ferox. Thanks, Kacky, Denise, and David C.
