2. The Men of the Garden

This fellow’s hair is crazy, it looks like he had a rough night. Again, Burro’s Tail. An interesting tidbit about this cactus – it has never been found in the wild. It was discovered in Mexico as a domesticated plant on someone’s porch. Little did they know how many head planter ideas they would spawn.

Medusa at her finest – or maybe Bob Marley? Love the locks on this gentleman.  He looks like he has it together. Stone planters get so wonderfully patinated with the green moss. This is when a planter’s head looks it’s finest – framed by long, tossed… hair.

Medusa is the first thing almost everyone thinks of and she’s a classic.  A monster, with hair of snakes, from Greek mythology. She even has a cactus named after her (the one below). A heavy duty head planter in stone with a spiky, spindly, trailing cactus make a great likeness to her.
