This is a very special place for me.....finding this nursery helped me let go of my mom, who was very ill at the time. She loved to garden and that is my fondest memory of her.
I have brought home a plant or two every time we go down there.The variety is more than anyone could imagine and they are great folks. If you are ever in the area, make time to stop, look and enjoy this wonderful place.

I love this place. It is a visual person's dream. The place is full of textures and colors. The women that work there are friendly, helpful, and have a great eye for design. However, I agree with the previous post that the plants are quite costly.

This place is a both a dream and a nightmare for me... a dream in that is has an incredible selection of rare and unusually cactus and succulents- and a nightmare as it is hard not to spend way over what my budget will allow. It is one of the most costly places, in terms of plant prices, but the quality is excellent. Nearly all plants are labeled (though many with archaic names or synonyms- and some just labeled incorrectly), and each plant, despite there being hundreds if not thousands of individually potted plants, seems individually cared for. The two owners are quite knowledgable, friendly and always have time for questions. The nursery is located on a main road in Pasadena, and has a really dinky parking lot, making getting in and out of it a challenge, if not a danger... but it's well worth the visit! Additionally, they have some very talented employees that are true artists when it comes to staging and arranging plants in pots.... it is a 'beautiful' nursery and that best describes it.
