Desert Garden
Narrow paths wind through the 12 acre Desert Garden, providing a convenient way to show plantings in the foreground without risking either cast or crew too close to cactus spines. The close juxtaposition of unusual cacti and other succulents is not designed to simulate the vast, barren open spaces of the actual desert, rather, it creates a rich, varied, sometimes otherworldly background setting; some plants seem to have sprung directly from Dr. Seuss illustrations. (For more information about this garden, click here.)
