Kelly Griffin: Madagascar – Plantasy Fantasy

As president of the San Diego Cactus and Succulent Society, Kelly will share one of his travel plant expeditions to Africa in search for water wise plants that will thrive in California’s similar climate.

Do not miss this rare opportunity to learn how plants in other countries in the Mediterranean climate as far away as off the coast of eastern Africa are perfect for the Southern California beach climes.

Kelly is most recognized with finding and creating new different plants that can be used in garden settings.
Kelly’s hybrid aloes are well-known in the nursery industry and collected by aloe enthusiasts.
Kelly is the manager of Succulent Plant Development for Altman Plants in Northern San Diego County, which is the largest producer of succulents in the country.
He has introduced more than 100 succulents to the plant world.
