  • A little gem that even locals do not know much about. Lots of succulents, and cacti. We ended up going there mid-day on hot day but there were enough shades and chairs to rest a little bit. They also had chilled water dispensers. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly.

  • If you love cactus and succulents, this is the place to be. Completely filled with all types of succulents, almost too much. Garden includes ceramic statues and other sculptures....a feast for the eyes....and there is a nursery on site. The garden is exquisite....highly recommend.

  • Lovely garden with sculpture show currently. Very hot but water is free with social media likes. Also provides parasols and there is a mister to cool off.

  • With a docent guided tour we learned about a lot of the plants they have there and the history of the garden. Definitely more than I anticipated. The nursery sells babies and larger plants at reasonable prices, with a great variety. Definitely worth checking out!

  • Do they sell everyday when they're open or not? Thx!
