Cactaceae Collection

Plant-detail-header

Designated as The National Collection of Cactaceae by the North American Plant Collections Consortium (NAPCC) of the American Public Gardens Association (June,2010)

Since the opening of the Garden in 1939, the Cactaceae has been a main focus of the Garden’s Living Collection. We currently have more than 7,890 accessioned plants, which means that for each plant there is a record of where it came from, the year it arrived at the Garden and who collected it.
