Location: Palm Room, Los Angeles County Arboretum, Arcadia










August Program
“Soft Succulents

Presented by Jeff Moore

NOTE: This month's meeting is in the Palm Room!

My talk is titled Soft Succulents, which is also the title of the new book. The PowerPoint/talk will follow the flow of the book, which is about all the soft, non-spiny succulents (well, not ALL, but representatives of each group). I'll show images and talk about aeoniums, echeverias, dudleyas, crassulas, sedums, senecios, kalanchoes, etc .  I'll also touch a bit on landscaping and dish garden arrangements with them, as these are those types of plants, but the focus will be much more on the plants themselves than the arts and crafts with succulents thing. I'll take questions throughout or after the talk and will bring plants and all 3 of my books to sell.

Jeff has owned and operated Solana Succulents in Solana Beach for over 26 years and have been self-publishing succulent books for the past 5 years. I gained a bit of notoriety for my 'undersea' succulent gardens over the years. Married with two grown sons (at least they're finally out of the house).
