The Desert Garden is one of the signature gardens at The Huntington Library, Art Museum and Botanical Gardens in Southern California, known as The Huntington.
It is a fully mature collection of succulents and cactus from around the world – a photographers fantasy land, full of strong shape and textures. On March 4, 2023 the light revealed these wonders. I am indebted to John Trager, curator of the collection for identification.
