The Succulent Collection began in the early 1980's with a donation of materials and plants from Marlene Rainman. It was later expanded with donations from Betty Paddock, Rella of Simply Succulent, and various botanical gardens in California. Very well draining soil for this collection was brought in to ensure success in our wet winter environment. The majority of the plants are from highland Mexico and South Africa, regions that have climates that are more like our own in terms of rainfall and temperatures. While there are over 150 different species and cultivars planted in the Succulent Garden, our collection represents only a tiny portion of the vast and wonderful world of succulents.
