He has owned and operated Solana Succulents in Solana Beach for over 26 years. Prior to that he was a succulent enthusiast/collector for at least ten years. His small retail nursery offers as many succulent/desert plants as he can fit into it – from the common and colorful plants that are so popular now to the collector plants – crests, caudiciforms, variegates, rare cacti, etc… He does quite a bit of succulent landscape design and installation as well, and have become known (at least in San Diego) for the gardens he’s installed at the Del Mar Fair and Home Shows over the years – in particular the ‘undersea’ succulent garden. Just over 3 years ago he self-published his first book, Under the Spell of Succulents, which covers the spectrum of the hobby of succulents in cultivation, highlighting the major genera as well as how we engage with plants – collectors, growers, landscaping, container culture, etc…. He is currently into the second printing of the book and by our meeting he should have his new book on aloes and agaves available. If he has a particular specialty or obsession, it has always been with aloes, and his powerpoint presentation will highlight aloes and agaves, as well as a quick overview of the book(s) and how he puts them together. He will also have plants for sale as well as his books.
