Why Stanford’s Arizona Garden is also called Cactus Garden is quite obvious when you come closer. Here are more than 500 species of cacti and succulent. In fact, these species are from around the world, not just local to Arizona.
I was there when some of them were in bloom; what a spectacular site!
While lizards are native they tend to be rare to find, but here you have a great chance to see them. We saw at least three on our little excursion.
You can find this free garden between Campus Drive and Arboretum Road. It is a bit of a hidden treasure; when I asked about this in the visitor center, the students had to ask around to find out where it was.
Have you ever been to this garden? What did you think?
