Succulent & Cactus Garden

The Succulent and Cactus Garden plot shows diversity in form, color, and size of a wide variety of succulents and cacti that grow well in San Luis Obispo County. There are plant selections that grow well in North County that need shade from summer heat, and are winter hardy.  The garden displays succulents that grow well in pots of various sizes with options for plant grouping, as well as container plants.

Succulents are beautiful plants with colorful leaves, interesting shapes and simple care. Succulents and cacti are a great choice for a slow paced garden since their requirements for maintenance and nutrients are low. They need little supplemental irrigation because they retain water in their stems, leaves, and roots.
