May 6 – October 16, 2016

This spring, the Conservatory of Flowers gets rough and tumble as it celebrates some of the more ornery gangs of the plant world in a new exhibition. Set amongst the rusty remnants of an old ghost town, The Wild Bunch explores the strange and dramatic world of water hoarding plants, bristling with living examples of cacti, fat plants (also known as caudiciforms) and other succulents. These fleshy, and often thorny, plants are distinguished for their ability to survive the most extreme, arid conditions, and their swollen stems and leaves come in a stunning variety of weird shapes and unexpected colors. – See more at: http://www.conservatoryofflowers.org/special-exhibits/wild-bunch-succulents-cacti-fat-plants#sthash.vYPrcVRD.dpuf
