Rare, Exotic and beautiful
Who can resist succulent plants?


About Us

We are cactus and succulent specialty growers

Rancho Vista Nursery has been a specialty grower of quality cactus and succulents for the wholesale nursery industry for over 40 years. Now our Farmstand is open to the public! We grow more than 500 species of plants under 6 acres of greenhouse and 4 acres of outdoor landscape specimens. There are 10 sale houses of beautiful plants in the main wholesale nursery and the Farmstand is open summer hours Saturday and Sunday 8am-3pm with special Farmstand pricing!

Cactus and Succulent Collections

Succulents are not only beautiful but uniquely drought tolerant

Every year we plant millions of cactus seed and succulent cuttings to produce some of the world's most exotic plants from the planet's most hostile environments. We have sizes ranging from 2.5" to 5 gal. pots, 24" boxed specimens and thousands of 3-8' field grown column cactus. We have 10 acres of beautiful plants!

We are situated in the ideal climate just north of San Diego in California where better light means better plants. We grow and ship year-round. Come see our great quality and extensive selection and meet our helpful customer service staff.

Let's grow something together!

Welcome to our Site

Growing high quality succulent plants is our top priority. We strive to provide the best products and most attentive service possible. California gardens call for beautiful drought-tolerant plants!


Succulent plants have a large following. Among the most famous collectors are Henry Huntington (Huntington Library and Garden) and Ganna Walska (Lotusland). You can visit their world class gardens in Pasadena and in Montecito, California. Most recently we noted the new and beautiful succulent gardens at Disneyland. You can follow our progress on Facebook as we update our gardens.

Today there is a growing appreciation for their unique beauty of form, color and texture. And their ability to store water makes them ideal as the plant most suited to a dry environment.


We're not just growers but curators of one of the largest collections of succulent plants in the world.
