Not sure if I liked it or not. Make up your own mind.
It was 35 degrees C in the shade on the day we were there and there was very lttle shade. I can't imagine what it would be like at the height of Summer. Maybe the dinosaurs became extinct with heat stress.
The garden was built on rock and contained a wide variety of cycads, euphorbias, agaves, aloes and cactii. I'm not going to even attempt to identify the various plants. Well, maybe I'll try, but I'm out of depth with cactii and succulents.
Most of the cycads were different to the ones we grow on the East Coast. There were quite a huge variety. This is just a small sample.
I know this is a euphorbia not a cactus because the sign said so.
So, are both of these cactii? The front one is. I'm not sure about the other one.
These are agaves
Some euphorbias in flower
I know these as desert roses. Adenium obesum I think - could be wrong.
Finally, I know what this is - an Australian Boab tree (Adansonia gregorii) . They grow in the Northern Territory around Katherine, across northern Western Australian and around the Kimberleys. They are well adapted to the extremes of climate this region dishes up. They lose most of their leaves in the dry season, but will be lush again when the wet season starts. Boabs are very slow growing trees. This fellow would have been here long before the garden was started. They have very large seedpods which drop around the tree and start a family of boabs.
