Winter growing succulents are the ultimate drought proof landscape plants and can thrive on minimal rainfall and very little irrigation.  Many of the oddball Winter growing succulents we admire at Succulent plant shows can do well in the landscape with proper site preparation.  Todd’s presentation will explore a range of Winter growing succulent species we usually see in containers and will cover a range to topics such as watering, pest control, soil amendments, and cold hardiness.
