Cold Hardy Cacti with Smith Rock Cactus Company


Thursday June 23rd 6pm

Want to desert-scape your yard or just add a few accent cactus plants? Julie Lay from Smith Rock Cactus Company will be joining us at Desert Rose to show you the ins & outs of raising robust cactus types that thrive here in our Central Oregon climate. Julie will have a small selection to sell at this event.

Topics Include:

  • Cold hardy types of cactus
  • Soil requirements
  • Rainfall vs. watering
  • Planting & placement
  • Flowers, Fruits, & Pruning
  • Cacti in cold weather climates

About Smith Rock Cactus Company:  As fans of the desert southwest, we wanted to make a "cactus garden" that we could enjoy here in Central Oregon.  However, finding cactus that will survive our cold winters was the issue.  After trial and error plus a ton of research, we now have over 60 different varieties that do very well year after year.  Smith Rock Cactus Company opened its doors in the summer of 2017.  Since then, we have continued to grow and expand our cactus garden.  You can find us on Facebook @smithrockcactuscompany or at our new website 

Join us for Happy Hour drinks at 5:30. Julie's talk will begin at 6pm.

$5 ticket, includes complimentary beverages!
