About The Speaker: Jeff Moore

Jeff Moore
I’ve owned and operated Solana Succulents as a small retail nursery in Solana Beach since 1992. Started writing succulent books six years ago and have really enjoyed the time since them traveling CA and AZ and speaking to all the C&S clubs and other plant societies. Married with two grown sons.

Program Topic – Spiny Succulents

This book is a follow up yin to the yang of the last book on soft succulents. It covers cacti, euphorbias, pachypodiums, alluaudias, terrestrial bromeliads, and a few other succulent adjacent xerophytes, most but not all spiny. I obviously can’t cover all of each family or genus in one book, but try to show you cultivated examples of the most prominent. Most of the images were taken in California or Arizona, with a few habitat images to introduce the sections. The book its aimed at the new enthusiast, but as always I try to make it visually engaging enough to appeal to the veteran as well, with any cultural tips or observations that I can provide.
