Make a Day of It
Succulent Gardens is located just a few miles from the scenic seaside town of Moss Landing. Eat at the Haute Enchilada, visit the sea otters swimming in the harbor, and go shopping at Driftwood and Dos Galleria.
Succulents are typically grown for their year-round vibrant colors and interesting textures, but their flowers can provide seasonal interest as well! With a little planning, you can enjoy year-round blooms in the succulent landscape by choosing plants for their flowering time. The key is diversity in general.
