Spiny Succulents at Rancho Santa Fe Library
January 30 @ 10:45 am–12:00 pm
Nurseryman and author Jeff Moore has spent most of his adult life negotiating this spiny landscape and takes you herein on a tour of these remarkable plants in cultivation.
This program will explore the his new book’s truly extraordinary succulents in cultivation: cacti, euphorbias, fouquierias, alluaudias, and a host of other dry-climate and often spiny architectural wonders. You will see images of some of these xerophytes in their native habitat, but the focus will be on spiny succulents in cultivation. Beautiful images of mature landscape plants will provide you with an appreciation of them at full size and maturity, but many are delightful little container specimens and are also highlighted.
While the structure of succulents is usually the first thing to draw you in, many will amaze you with their glorious and colorful flowers. You’ll even learn to love the spines!
