The Cactus Garden at South Coast Botanic Garden has a long history closely tied to the club. Here Stan Olsen is leading a tour through the newly established garden and some of the plants are still growing today.
Some more views of the original Cactus Garden plantings.
A view from the Tram Road looking South into the growing Cactus Garden. The foreground shows the young Aloes while in the background the young tree Euphorbias.
Standing outside the growing garden with the Pseudobombax to the left, the Cleistocactus in the foreground and the large Parkinsonia tree at the corner of the garden adjacent to the Tram Road.
Another view from the interior of the Cactus Garden with the Parkinsonia tree as a point of reference. All these black and white images were taken in 1988 and the originals reside in the South Coast Botanic Garden Foundation Archives.
