Cactus and Succulent Show
By Matt Cole, Director of Education on Mar 26, 2008
I visited our Cactus and Succulent collection today and was pleased to see the blooms. Their thickened forms and outlandish shapes hide their underlying solidarity with our more familar landscape plants, at least until they bloom and reveal their true affiliation. The blooms seem all the precious when you contemplate them in contrast to their dry, challenging habitats in the wild.
The Colorado Cactus and Succulent Society is having a show at Denver Botanic Gardens this Saturday, March 29 (9 a.m.-5 p.m.) and Sunday, March 30 (9 a.m.-4 p.m.). The show includes recognized experts available to answer questions, brief yet informative seminars, hourly drawings for free plants, and a variety of plants and supplies for sale. I just hope to see more beautiful plants!
