There are 1000 specimens of cacti and succulents presented in this part of the Huntington. Beautiful colors, textures and shapes. Do not over look this part of the gardens.
Remember "The Little Old Lady From Pasadena"? Nobody wanted to there in those days. Times change. Pasadena is now a serene gem just twenty minutes from LA, with a great downtown to walk, terrific restaurants, good shops, and even a Tesla store!

One of my favorite parts of The Huntington grounds, and the number of unusual plants is dazzling. Combine this with a visit to the galleries, or a great restaurant on the premises. The gift shop is also well worth visiting.

The plants are beautiful in their own right and yet also feel like living sculptures. My only wish was that I had the time for a guided tour.
