On February 8, 2010 the large specimen of Euphorbia ingens fell to the ground. Cuttings from this plant, that was part of the orginal installation of the Cactus Garden in 1982, have been placed into the ground to begin a new generation.
It was sad to see the tree gone. It was spectacular.
But I must say that Cactus garden looks great, and it if you did not know the tree was there in the first place you wouldn't miss it.
