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.Today there is a growing appreciation for the unique beauty of form, color and texture of succulents. 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.
We will be closed Monday, the 4th of July
