The Central Arizona Cactus and Succulent Society (CACSS) Show and Sale returns to the Desert Botanical Garden, April 8-10. Visitors will see amazing, beautiful and bizarre examples of cacti and succulents as members of the CACSS display potted specimens of desert plants from around the world.

CACSS members display hundreds of their best plants and compete for ribbons and trophies. Growers and potters present their wares for members and the public to purchase. Hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday. Entry is included with garden membership or paid garden admission. All proceeds benefit CACSS and Desert Botanical Garden, located at 1201 N. Galvin Parkway.

CACSS works with private landowners and developers to rescue cactus and succulent plants that would be bladed prior to development of the land. Working with the Arizona Department of Agriculture, permits are obtained to rescue the plants that are offered for resale to members and the public. Visit for more information.
