Second visit in the last few years.

Very interesting collection of cacti. Very rustic setting and you can't beat the price of $5. Plan on spending 45 minutes to an hour.

We decided to see these gardens and it was very pleasant. It is an easy stop with a $5 admission. The Cacti were amazing to see. So many varieties and they were just starting to bloom. An hour is plenty of time to see them all.

While not for everyone, this is probably the most extensive and varied collection of cacti and succulents to be seen in America. Still run by family of its founders, this rather compact "cactarium" will impress any nature lover or avid gardener. Adult admission is an affordable $5, and while a little quirky, it provides a pleasant and mildly amazing way... More

While staying in the desert this is your chance to see many varieties of desert plants, all in one small location. Worth the 5 dollars!

I learnd more about succulent plants here than I have in any book. The employees are a wealth of knowledge. The plants are beautiful and many were blooming. Most plants were labeled with added informatiom so you could see what they were and how they were used. Very peaceful experience. Even though there were a lot of people there I... More

This is sort of a quirky cactus garden with beautiful plants of all types and sizes. Easy walking pathway through the garden. The $5 admission is a real bargain.

We now live in a hot climate so decided to visit these "Botanical" gardens to get inspiration on what we could plant in our own garden. Well I think the gardens should be renamed "The Cactus Gardens" as at the time if our visit that's all that was there. There was more colour on the side of the roads. Extremely... More
