Legendary Adenia Spinosa


Many succulents can start off small but with the proper care and the right conditions, some can grow to massive proportions. That was the case with these giant Adenia spinosa we received last month, each weighing over 60+ pounds and absolutely ready to not move an inch. Crowned with a bristling forest of thorny branches atop their rock hard emerald green bodies, they were absolute head turners for guests walking through our greenhouse.


While several have been snapped up by a few enterprising customers who aren’t afraid to do a little heavy lifting, a couple are still on premises.  Stop by the nursery Thursday through Sunday  if you’re interested in seeing these living South African treasures in person. We’re happy to help load one in your car if you fall in love!
