Ethel M's awe inspiring Botanical Cactus Garden is Nevada's largest and one of the world's most complete collections of cacti and other succulents. The plants are laid out in a very natural looking three acre setting and, of course, they are all chosen for their drought resistant qualities.
The garden contains over 300 species of plants. Fully half are cacti and succulents mostly native to the American Southwest. The remainder are desert trees and shrubs from the Southwestern U.S, Australia, and South America. All of these plants were chosen for their beauty and their adaptability to the climate of Southern Nevada.
