Cactus and Succulents in the news

The Statesman Journal, the newspaper serving the Salem, Oregon area, had an article on Thursday about growing cactus and agave plants in the Northwest. They then visited the outstanding xerophytic gardens of Ron McKitrick over in Yakima, Washington (the Hillside Desert Botanical Gardens). Though certainly worthy of a visit, the 6 inch annual rainfall east of the mountains certainly provides for different challenges than found in the rainier portions of Oregon and Washington. I'll be looking forward to future installments.
