If you like cactus, succulents, and other water wise plants, you’ll love Ruth Bancroft Gardens. There is an astonishing assortment of rare and common succulents with blooms and beauty galore. This is a hidden treasure in a suburban neighborhood. Make a point to visit and you’ll view cactus in a different light.

We were initially a little put off by the $10 charge to see the gardens, but found it was well worth it. I've never been a big fan of cacti or succulents, but I was amazed by the unearthly beauty of this garden. Many different things to see, paths to walk, plants that were unbelievable. A few green houses that were pretty amazing as well. I took some of the most amazing pictures there. Definitely well worth a visit!

This garden is really amazing, it had been revamped and has been put on the map again. It is FULL of wonderful succulents and cactus, and drought friendly plants and trees. It is small but packed with information. Try to go when the plants are flowering....amazing.

Great place for people interested in succulent plants of all kinds and original, inspirational garden design. Very, interesting, quirky garden. I bought a membership because it gets me into all kinds of other gardens too.
