Welcome to our Site
Growing high quality succulent plants is our top priority. We strive to provide the best products and most attentive service possible. As the California drought continues the demand for beautiful drought-tolerant plants will continue to grow!
We love succulent plants and we are not alone. Among the most famous collectors are Henry Huntington (Huntington Library and Garden) and Ganna Walska (Lotusland). You can visit their world class gardens in Pasadena and in Montecito, California.Most recently we noted the new and beautiful succulent gardens at Disneyland. Today there is a growing appreciation for their unique beauty of form, color and texture. And their ability to store water makes them ideal as the plant most suited to a dry environment.
You can follow our progress on Facebook as we update our own gardens and growing fields.
Fall is a great time to plant and update your garden!
Succulents are perfect growers in warmer weather. Some plants are said to be winter growers but here in San Diego we grow them year-round! We have an extensive variety and large quantities of plants available now!
