Judged Cactus and Succulent Show at Halawa Xeriscape Garden in 2017. Our members showed off their most impressive plants in another part of the garden as the Plant Sale was going on.
We're there every year, in the big tent just past the refreshment stands.
Come and witness the wonderfully diverse inhabitants in the world of succulents.
