 Native Cactuses of New Mexico 

Join Dave Ferguson, the ABQ Botanic Garden’s desert collection curator, for this talk about how these incredible plants are a prominent though often under-appreciated part of our natural landscape. Learn how cactuses can be grown as ornamentals - their intriguing forms and spectacular ­flowers are useful as well as beautiful in xeric drought-tolerant gardens and landscaping.
