July 20: Kelly Griffin in Oaxaca: Bromeliads of Oaxaca:
This month, Kelly Griffin will be visiting us again from the San
Diego area. For those of you who do not know Kelly, he is the
manager of Succulent Plant Development for Altman Plants, the
largest producer of succulents in the country. His inclination has
been towards Agaves, Aloes, and Echeverias, but his interests
extend to almost all plants. In his job he has been able to travel
all over the world documenting plants and collecting seeds for
propagation – some have even been finding their way into our
gardens. He also has hybridized many aloes and agaves that are
collected by many hobbyists.
This month, Kelly will speak to us on a trip that he made this
spring to Oaxaca. Kelly is a great photographer and narrator, so
this will be a good show.
Kelly also will be bringing plants for sale.
