2016 Monsoon Madness Plant Sale

Friday | July 28 | 3 – 7 p.m.

Saturday | July 29 | 8 a.m. – 1 p.m.


Compared with, say, petunias, cacti and their cousins are pretty strange looking plants. But for the strangest of the strange—those highly unusual cacti, succulents and euphorbias—you need look no further than our annual Monsoon Madness Plant Sale.

Over 20 specialty growers of the weirdest and wildest varieties will be showcasing their bizarre, boutique botanicals under the shade of our Sonoran Seasons Garden’s ramadas. Meet the growers of these specimens and learn about the evolutionary advantages conferred by even the strangest of features: from dense, curlicue spines on certain cacti, to little translucent “windows” in a variety of succulents. Or, talk to the growers about their trade and find out how they care for their living wares. Either way, you’ll be sure to enjoy yourself in the festival atmosphere that characterizes Tohono Chul’s sales.

Once you’ve selected your favorites from a plethora of peculiar, edible, showy and trickster, native, near native and exotic species, you’ll be able to pair them with the perfect pot(s) from our greenhouse. See you there! Free admission during the sale.
