Blossom Valley Protea is a great Protea specific grower in San Diego. I know they do a few plant sales in L.A.during the year, give a ring to find out where. A few retail places in NE LA would be La Crescenta Nursery in La Crescenta, Burkhards in Pasadena, and San Gabriel Nursery in San Gabriel all have various protea relatives at various times.

San Marcos Growers in Santa Barbara is wholesale, but they offer a good selection as well if you in that zone. Joe O'connel that runs Australian plants in Ojai is another good source. Happy hunting-

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Fan Aloe
How to use it. Sensitive to frost, fan aloe commonly grows in pots or containers, making maintenance a breeze once temperatures drop. And since the plant propagates so seamlessly through cuttings, well-packaged, thoughtful housewarming gifts abound; just add a unique vessel. In climates that don’t have freezing temperatures, add fan aloe to a sandy, barren and freely draining site. It's native to the coastal cliffs of South Africa, so you can add fan aloe to your list of plants that thrive where others fail. Its clean texture and cool gray-green color soothe surrounding landscape colors, allowing vivid plants to advance into focus. Its long-leafed foliage diversifies the silhouette of a succulent garden while still providing a minimalist, sculptural effect.Shown: Aloe plicatilis with Leucospermum and Echeveria

fan aloe The last building on the estate is Da Monsta, inspired by Frank Stella and completed in 1995. The building was designed to be an entrance pavilion for the future house-museum, but residents opposed the traffic this would create, so now the visitor center is located in downtown New Canaan, across the street from the train station.
