Best Plant Nurseries, October 2010
Cacti and succulents are enjoying a revival as decorative additions to midcentury and Spanish-style homes. California Cactus Center carries staples such as flowering echeveria and hardy kalanchoe. While La Cienega Nursery near Melrose and Cosentino’s in Malibu also have a formidable stock of arid-weather varieties, the staff here is eager to educate, and labels indicate points of origin: Mexico, Brazil, Madagascar, South Africa, the Canary Islands. A giant saguaro keeps watch from a corner near an array of containers and colorful planting pebbles.
