Desert Garden

The Desert Garden features the spiny, poky and prickly leaves of cacti and other succulents, including familiar Agave (century plants), Euphorbia (crown of thorns), Crassula (jade plant) and a number of woody “lilies” — plants like Nolina and Yucca, to name a few. Stewarded by a loyal troop of volunteers who genially call themselves “Desert Diggers,” the Desert Garden continues to flourish as an educational example of the many fascinating plants that populate arid spaces of the world.
