Spectacular Succulent Gardens


Aloe polyphylla

No trip to Monterey is complete without a stop at Succulent Gardens. The big Aloe polyphylla on the right was HUGE. It’s in a wine barrel.

Caution, Succulents

Matti’s been playing around, taking crazy pics with the panorama camera setting on his phone.



Echeveria ‘Cassyz Winter’ all cresty

That’s me on crutches…

Don’t miss out on the giant Succulent Globe by Succulent Gardens at the SF Flower & Garden Show this weekend (the nursery is closed during the show).


  1. I always enjoy the trip to the nursery. It is the day with friends that seems to rekindle your spirit and your emotional vitality. Thank you so much for sharing your photos

  2. Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow! Don’t you just love that place! Cool pics!

  3. That is a perfect place for a nice walk. You are lucky to live in a climate where you can grow succulents outside all year round. If I was there, man, I would make a living out of it!! That and pet tortoises :))

  4. The title of the blog says it all..
