Sunny Lands Rancho Mirage Ca

Post by mikethecactusguy »

Saturday Afternoon my wife a friend decided we needed to visit Sunny Lands in Rancho Mirage Ca.
This is a 200 acre estate owned by the Annenberg Foundation. Visiting the "Garden" is Free. The House is closed for Civid. There is a tour available that is reasonable in cost.
Just a few pictures of the thousands of Plants located on this property. We walked the property in about an hour and a half. 90 minutes. If you have not been, and are in the Coachella Valley visiting, you must go.

I did tug on a few seed pods on the barrels. Some came loose. I left them. Bad Karma to steal.

Looks like a fun place to visit. I actually recognize a few of the species shown. Is the first one Ferocactus wisliizeni? Or something close else in the Fercocatus family?
