Cactus Show 1

Desert Plant Show at VanDusen Garden

Cacti & Sedums & Semps, Oh My!


On Sunday I went to the Desert Plant Show at VanDusen Garden.  Very cool plants lovingly tended to by the members of the Desert Plant Society of Vancouver.    Here is what their website has to say about the club: We are an enthusiastic group of ‘casual amateurs’ who are fascinated by cacti and succulent plants. We meet monthly to discuss our hobby, to watch slide shows and to display our plants as they grow and flower. The degree of interest of our members ranges from novice growers and casual hobbyists who like cacti and succulents because of their bizarre habits (of the plants, although according to some spouses – of the enthusiasts, too), to collectors and growers involved in specialized propagation of rare and endangered species. Collections range in size from the window ledge variety, to multiple greenhouses. Our membership includes those who have worldwide contacts, those who attend international and regional conferences, and those who regularly travel to destinations around the world to see plants in habitat. We share our interests in studying, collecting, growing and the conservation of cacti and succulents. For more information:
