As I was brainstorming on what beautiful grim to add to make our frontyard more Halloween ready, I realized that the colors on some of my plants are pretty deep and dark.
The smoke tree (spooktastic name, no?)
Gorgeous, enchanting bush that will grow pretty tall. For now, we like to keep it low to fit in better with the rest of the landscape.
The dragon blood succulent
Feel like going into a fantasy world to ride a dragon yet? The dragon blood thrives on my succulent / rock driveway - the colors and texture are so beautiful!
The kangaroo paw
These drought tolerant plants give us an explosion of warm colors most of the year - attracting the hummingbirds, the bees, and our neighbors. Really, we got quite a few knocks on the door and hellos from by-passers asking what this amazing looking plants are called.
The sea creature succulent
I cannot seem to find its actual name - but it does look like one of the exquisite kelp under the sea, no? Flashing its deep orange hue, this one would be so pretty on any arrangement. Mine will greet you hello at the front yard =)
The manzanillo olive
Lastly, the olive wants to be a part of the trend and turning dark brownish purple too. (We should've picked 'em when they're green, but hey, I like that they now add even more colors at the front!)
I think we are pretty safe even if we didn't have the pumpkins out this year, what dya think? Do you decorate for Halloween and Thanksgiving?
