Vertical-growing San Pedro cacti (Cereus peruvianus) form the backdrop of the composition, with Agave ‘Blue Glows’ offering complementary color. “The contrasting form reflects the same rhythm as the San Pedros,” notes Winters. The golden barrels add drama and draw the eye to the foreground.
In Austin we could interpret this with Jerusalem thorn trees for height, 'Color Guard' yuccas for yellow and green spikes, Agave parryi truncata (low, blue agaves), and rosemary or copper canyon daisy for the rounded green shrub in the foreground.
