In addition to their plant offerings, The Huntington is among the world's most important repositories for the history of science and technology. I love this place! From the Chinese Gardens with their inspiring bridges, to the Huntington's Rose Hills Foundation Conservatory for Botanical Science; it is a must stop for garden lovers. Their botanical collections display approximately 15,000 kinds of plants from all over the world arranged in collections, many landscaped into a series of theme gardens. Amazing place.
I have ordered hybrid Echinopsis many times from the HBG and always had a very good experience. The plants are among the finest available, generlly good sized and very healthy. Many have bloomed the day after I received them. My experience with their personnel exceeds all expectations.

This is a clean, weed free nursery, plants are grown on benches, they tend to run slow shiping the month of April-May due to the ISI Introductions, the plants are shipped bare root, and spotless. The prices are resonable for the size of plant. The have everything your little heart desires, but not at all times. These plants are inspected by the Agricultural Dept. They will be labeled correctly with two labels and a receipt of your order. I give them an A+
