    If you're in the SoCal desert, give this nursery a try. It's about a 20 minutes drive from Palm Springs.

    This nursery's main focus is succulents. However, they have many CA native desert plants. There also is a small hardware store attached.

    I purchased three 1-gallon desert globe mallow plants (~$10 each). Each plant is about a foot tall. I was even able to pick the bloom colors - pink, orange (apricot) and white. They had other larger sizes available. For $0.59, you can dig up your own cactus.

    Many friendly and helpful employees out and about but they left me alone after a little chit chat (which I prefer).

    They also have two lovely and loving cats that allow petting while you wait in line!

    They accept the usual credit cards, cash, etc.

    I don't live near but I did have a conference in Palm Springs. We had a lot of downtime.
