What’s the attraction: Poots Cactus Nursery, also called Poots House of Cactus, got its start more than 30 years ago as a hobby, but has since grown into one of the largest retail cactus nurseries in Northern California. Located on Highway 120 just outside Ripon, the nursery has greenhouses full of cacti and succulents, from aloes and barrel cacti to fuzzy, pink-spined or strangely shaped plants. With more than 200,000 plants from more than 300 species, and the help of knowledgeable owners Bill and Roelyn Poot, there’s something for everyone.

In addition to the greenhouses full of cacti for sale, the Poots have a desert garden full of their own cacti, which often feature stunning flowers throughout the summer months. As California’s drought drags on, their garden shows that a yard can be gorgeous even without water-hungry lawns and shrubs.
