Precious and prickly treasures on show and sale at Huntington
The Huntington’s annual Cactus and Succulent Show and Sale is popular with desert plant lovers, and with good reason. For drought-conscious gardeners, the hundreds of exotic plants on display and for sale offer endless inspiration.
The show has much to offer aficionados and curiosity-seekers alike as rare specimens from Mexico and Chile share the stage with plants from Argentina, Botswana, Madagascar, even the Middle East.
But you don’t have to travel to another continent to experience unusual desert plants.
Following the sale, visitors can explore the Huntington’s awe-inspiring 10-acre Desert Garden, where some 4,000 different species of cactuses and succulents are on display year-round.
Insider tip: Serious shoppers may want to attend the “Early Bird Sale” on Friday as many of the rare show plants are gone by Sunday.
