Our meeting this month will be held at 1:00 PM due to the DBG closing early.

February 26, 2017

SPEAKER: Karen Zimmerman, Succulent Plant Propagator at The Huntington Desert Collections

TOPIC: “Aloes on my mind: Exploring Aloe Hybrids One Generation at a Time”

I start with an overview of the genus aloe; distribution and diversity of species. I talk a little about the work of hybridizers up to the present, with a special mention about Kelly Griffin, my inspiration.  I show parent plants and offspring, some that became good enough to name and distribute, and others that became disappointments. Then I show some promising babies and future possibilities.
