2013 – Show and Sale

The year 2013 saw changes in format and schedule for Henry Shaw Cactus and Succulent Society’s Show and Sale, which ran two days in late June in conjunction with the opening of Missouri Botanical Garden’s new Plants and People of the Western U.S. Deserts show. HSCSS moved to a different section of Ridgway Center this year, and although the show had fewer entries than in past years, many interesting and diverse plants filled the display area. Pam Schnebelen won the top Sweepstakes award, followed by Mike Hellman and Tom Degnan. Barbara Gardner won in the Decorative Division. Thanks to excellent sale plant selections provided by J & J Cactus & Succulents and Drummond Nursery, the sale was a successful fund-raiser for the club.
