SEABED. Imagine diving into the cool waters of a cove somewhere along the Pacific Coast, then peering through your diver’s mask at the undersea life shimmering in the depths. What might you see? Perhaps a scene that looks much like the planting here, created by a Southern California succulent fanatic and snorkeler using small agaves, aloes, and ground- cover succulents. Some are easier to find than others. Design: Jeff Moore.
A coral look-alike with upright, fluted, knobby-tipped foliage appears to sway in a current.
Slender, tubular leaves make this Dudleya look like a convinc- ing sea anemone.
A hybrid echeveria with frilled, reddish edges recalls a jelly- fish’s undulating umbrella.
Spiny, curving leaves of Dyckia marnier-lapostollei give it the look of a starfish in motion.
