Site of the Succulent Celebration

Will you be at the  and book launch June 7-8 near San Diego? I’d love to see you there! To entice you, here are a few glimpses of the nursery that’s hosting it, .


Aeonium ‘Zwartkop’, in pots and on the hillside, is one of the succulents that the nursery sells a lot of.


This is the catfish pond, with alstroemeria in the foreground.


Another view of the pond. You can see the flowers in the previous photo, now on the opposite side.


I climbed the hill to take this photo to show you.


These kangaroo paws are in one of the display gardens.


These are in the shadecloth area. Not all succulents can handle full sun—especially not echeverias (foreground). Others are yellow-orange Sedum nussbaumerianum and rosy Graptosedum ‘California Sunset’.


The succulents on the lower left are one of my favorites: Crassula perforata. It’s a great cascader. Near it are Aeonium ‘Kiwi’ and (lower right, with purple flowers) Kalanchoe pumila.


Does anyone know what species or cultivar of Opuntia this is? Even the nursery doesn’t know what to call it. The manager, Tom Jesch, says it looks like a poodle ran into it. Fascinating!

Hope to see you there!
