Owners Bob Webb and Toni Yocum have
grown succulent plants for more than 35
years, many of which were obtained from
Arid Lands Greenhouses before they bought it in 2006. They have
traveled extensively in Africa and
Arabia, looking for and photographing
succulent plants. They have been to
Oman, Yemen, Socotra, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Namibia,
Botswana, and South Africa.
They live in the Sonoran Desert, and Toni is that rare Tucson native.
Bob and Toni frequently give talks on their travels and expertise with plants. Bob is co-editor of the journal Sansevieria, the flagship publication of the International Sansevieria Society, and has described several Agave and Sansevieria for publication as new species.
Susan Quashne has been with us several years and helps to manage the nursery.
Angel Martinez, Dave Paiz, Carrie, and Dan all work at the nursery and can help you in person or on the phone.
The three dogs you might see at the nursery are Kaspar and Katia (German shepherds) and Simon (a rescue dog).
