Southern California Fall & Winter events, now or soon!

When we cactus and succulent folks talk about winter growers we often mean in the autumn months of October and November. Well, that holds true for our winter sales as well!

The San Gabriel Valley Cactus & Succulent Society exhibits the splendors of the fall and winter, growing succulents and cacti rarely seen in summer shows. Featured plants will include succulent pelargoniums (wild relatives of the garden geranium) and Cyphostemma (fat-trunked natural sculptures from arid Africa from the grape family). Haworthia and Echeveria will be developing new leaves at the start of the winter growing season, and Conophytum, the jewels of the Mesembryanthemaceae, will be at their best.
