Cactus Courier
Newsletter of the Cactus and Succulent Society of San Jose


Peter Beiersdorfer will give a presentation on plants in the stonecrop family, or Crassulaceae, that grow in the winter rain fall region of South Africa. This region, the West Coast of South Africa, has a large variety of plants from this family. They mostly belong to one of three genera: Adromischus, Tylecodon, and Crassula. Peter will show plants from these three genera in their natural habitat. Peter will bring plants for sale.
