Solana Succulents


Solana Succulents is a walk-in retail nursery, with a dizzying array of plants cherry-picked from local growers and backyard collectors.  For this reason, we are not a wholesaler, although certain items may be discounted for wholesale purposes if supply is sufficient.  We also do not ship, but if you’re visiting from far away, we can help you pack your plants for later shipping.  Nor are we a mail-order nursery; this web page is just a billboard to get you to visit.  If you like succulents and are in the San Diego area, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with our selection.

Solana Succulents is fairly well-known for our annual Del Mar Fair and home show gardens, in particular the ‘Under the Succulent Sea’ gardens.  Check out the photos on the following pages.
