Cactus & Chaparral 

I haven’t posted anything in a while….Let’s just say we’ve been busy spring cleaning and gardening!

A few weeks ago I found an ad on Craigslist for a local cactus and native plant nursery.  After asking around, I realized that most of my friends knew nothing about it!  So…off we went to check it out.


Chaparral Cactus and Succulents in Amarillo is an amazing resource for native plants and succulents.


The owners are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful.  Did you know there are succulents that are perennial and tropical?  She also had a section of plants that were specifically chosen by a Colorado group to be the best native plants for our area this year.  

I loved their outdoor spaces, where customers could see many of the plants in the ground.

All of the plants had photos above them that showed the mature plant in a garden, along with descriptions and growing info.


I haven’t mentioned the rose selection either, have I? *sigh*. They smelled soooooooooo good!!!


We are so excited to have discovered this little locally owned business.  The prices were great and we felt confident walking away with plants we know will actually thrive in our climate!

A seed pod exploded on a cactus:
