Palomar College Cactus and Succulent Garden
The Palomar Cactus and Succulent Garden is located at Comet Circle Drive and Mission Ave on the San Marcos campus of Palomar College.
The Cactus and Succulent Garden provides great examples of xeriscape and fire-resistant plants. The site is a 2½ acre plot with .92 of its total size fenced in. The fenced section houses the rare and more valuable species. These gardens include:
- A Madagascar Garden
- A California, Baja, Arizona and Nevada Garden
- A Pachypodium Garden
- A Sansaveria Garden
- A Dudleya Garden
- Two Canary Island Gardens
These plant collections are maintained in as natural a state as possible. Few if any pesticides, fertilizers, or herbicides are used in the Garden.
