Description

The Cactus and Succulent Society of New Mexico (CSSNM)  will have an exhibition of prize-winning plants along with some presentations and demonstrations during Labor Day weekend. Come see some of the exotic, fascinating, occasionally confusing, and wonderful plants from the world of cacti and other succulents. Learn about the cold hardy plants that work well in Albuquerque landscapes, including many “non-prickly” ones, how to handle the “prickly” ones, and even learn about the edible ones. Join us for a fun and educational event.

CSSNM is a registered nonprofit affiliate of the Cactus and Succulent Society of America, which was organized to promote better understanding and appreciation of some of nature’s most unusual and unique creations, and the conservation and preservation of threatened and endangered plant life throughout the world.
