California Cactus Center

A nursery specializing in strange and beautiful succulents and cacti


The California Cactus Center may be small in comparison to the Huntington Gardens and Los Angeles County Arboretum, both of which are located down the street, but it rivals its esteemed neighbors in terms of the beauty and rarity of the unusual cacti and succulents it has for sale.

The owners are friendly and helpful, and have an adorable one-eyed cat. Even if you aren't in the market for new, unusual plants (like a gorgeous, professionally-staged show-quality Euphorbia medusoid) perusing their collection is certainly worth a visit.

Whether the cats missing eye has anything to do with the abundant cacti around the shop is unknown.
