2016 Succulent Extravaganza Schedule

We're thrilled to host the 6th Annual Succulent Extravaganza at Succulent Gardens Friday, September 23 and Saturday, September 24.

This year, we will explore the richest areas of the world for succulent habitats, including South Africa, South America, North America and Mexico, North Africa and the Canary Islands, and Europe and Eurasia. Understanding the origin of succulents allows us to better understand the succulents themselves, their ecological roles, ability to withstand drought, and physical characteristics. Further, a look at the conditions in which succulents live in their natural habitat will allow succulent enthusiasts to better understand how best to replicate these natural environments in their home garden.

We have an amazing lineup of tours, workshops, and lectures for you led by our own Succulent Gardens professionals and creative types from around the United States. In no particular order, presenting this year will be: 

  • Robin Stockwell, Founder of Succulent Gardens
  • Lisa Waud, Flower House and pot & box
  • Debra Lee Baldwin, Author and 'Queen of Succulents'
  • Janet Sluis, Sunset Western Garden Collection
  • Ryan Penn, The Ruth Bancroft Garden
  • Andrea Hurd, Mariposa Gardens
  • Aaron Ryan, General Manager of Succulent Gardens
  • Julia Bell, Creative Director of Succulent Gardens
  • Kristin Scheidt, Propagation Manager of Succulent Gardens
  • Laura Balaoro and the Succulent Fanatics
  • Brian & Mary Merrell, Living Creations
  • The Monterey Bay Master Gardeners
  • and more!
