About the Kansas City

Cactus and Succulent Society

Started over 40 years ago, the KCCSS is a wealth of knowledge for its members and to the community through events and programs the group provides. The group hosts a spectacular judged show and a one-of-a-kind sale that offers incredible and unusual plants available. Visitors are welcomed join us at any meeting for hands-on workshops, beautiful slide presentations and always a great place to find out how others grow these plants in our less than perfect climate. Check out our event's schedule and please join us. Visitors are always welcomed!
