We grow what we love and what we find to do well in our climate.  

Cacti and succulents are our primary plant focus though other native plants add to the mix.  We propagate, responsibly collect, and grow our plants in Oak Cliff/West Dallas.

Kim Cadmus Owens

Flora Wrangler

Wrangler of all things pokey, Kim loves water-wise and native plants, particularly agave, sotol, yucca, and cacti. "I grew up in a house with huge spanish dagger in front that flattened many soccer balls and vowed to never have plants that could stab me but I finally succumbed." Her plant collection now grows in many directions.

Born and raised in Texas, Kim has ridden many a tumble weed across Texas contemplating its ever-changing landscape and in search plants and perspective. She is an artist, see kimcadmusowens.com, and a professor at the University of Dallas in Studio Art.
