  • Debra Lee Baldwin Presents Succulents Simplified

    Location: 
    hall

    Lecture included with paid Garden admission

    Speaker: Debra Lee Baldwin

     

    The South Coast Botanic Garden is proud to be the first Los Angeles-area venue to host Debra Lee Baldwin on tour with her new book, Succulents Simplified. Debra will share what's new and exciting with these architectural, geometric and stylish "plants that drink responsibly" and explain how a few photogenic Southern California gardens launched a worldwide phenomenon. “We have a near-perfect climate for succulents, so our botanical gardens, nurseries and landscape professionals have had a head start on the plants’ cultivation and uses,” she says. “The international gardening community is eager to see what Southern California hybridizers, growers and designers come up with next.” Debra also will show gorgeous new cultivars and how top garden and floral designers are using succulents in bouquets, topiaries and even wearable art. 

     

    Award-winning garden photojournalist Debra Lee Baldwin authored Designing with Succulents and Succulent Container Gardens, both bestsellers. Her new book, Succulents Simplified: Growing, Designing and Crafting with 100 Easy-Care Varieties is a Timber Press summer, 2013 release. Debra is a regular contributor to Sunset and other publications, and her own half-acre garden near San Diego has been featured in Better Homes & Gardens. She specializes in showing how to use architectural, water-wise and easy-care succulents in a variety of appealing and creative applications. Debra will sign books before and after her presentation.

    If ever there was a flower that knew the meaning of variety, it is the Dahlia. While its colors are limited to the warm ranges of red, orange, yellow, pink, and white, its flowers come in a dizzying array of shapes and sizes. Dahlias bring life and beauty back to your landscape in late summer and into the fall months. The diversity of the Dahlia allow you to use them in many different aspects of your landscape design, from low growing border plants to stately background plantings that may reach six feet in height! Society members will be on hand to answer questions.
