On Saturday, June 30 we are planning to visit the Cactus Show and Sale at the Huntington in San Marino. Show hours are 10am-5pm.This is always a great show of specimen plants and a great opportunity to buy plants that are not readily available along with visiting the Huntington Gardens or Library.
"Hundreds of intriguing plants will be on view as the Cactus and Succulent Society of America presents its annual show and sale. With today's growing interest in dry-climate gardening, it is a must for anyone wanting to learn more about these wonderfully diverse and visually striking plants. An early-bird sale gets underway Friday; the show opens Saturday and continues through Sunday at the Brody Botanical Center."
Admission is free to members of the Huntington and $29.00 payable onsite. Admission is for the Huntington and the Cactus Show and Sale. 1151 Oxford Road, San Marino, CA 91108
For those who want to carpool we will leave from the Wellness Park in Palm Springs at 8:30am. The Huntington has a variety of lunch options. We can plan to head home between 2 and 3pm.
