THE MOORTEN BOTANICAL GARDENS

07 Jul

While in Palm Springs Hubby and I went to the Moorten Botanical Gardens for the first time. It’s very close to downtown Palm Springs, and if you’re a hipster, it’s walking distance from the Ace Hotel. The Moorten has a long history, and you should check out its website if you’re interested. They have desert plants from deserts all over the world, and also a “cactarium,” sort of like a cactus greenhouse. Here’s the cactarium.

This is the view as you walk into the cactarium.

Duh.

Some of the cactuses grow horizontally along the ground.

A hanging cactus growing downwards!

Some cute small cactuses.
