Monday, November 5th, 2018, 7:30pm

It is easy to see what attracts people to beautiful flowers and statuesque trees. Yet, if you ask what there is to like about cactus and succulents, you are bound to receive different answers from the collectors of these plants. At first glance, people are often surprised at the variety of striking shapes, textures and unworldly features which exist in the cactus and succulent plant families.

Come explore the world of cactus and succulents. Broaden your knowledge and appreciation for these fascinating plants all while learning how they might leave your windowsill and find a new place in your garden. Gunnar Eisel's interest in cacti and succulents can be traced back to his childhood infatuation with photographing night-blooming cereus flowers and a few unfortunate encounters with opuntia glochids.

His interest in cacti became intensified through many trips to the Anza-Borrego desert. As an avid cactus and succulent collector, he serves as General Manager of the Cactus and Succulent Society of America.
