Iris munzii by Evan MeyerSouth African Wistensia maura by Evan Meyer


California is globally renowned for its fantastic displays of annuals, sweeping landscapes of drought adapted shrubs, and charismatic trees. The flora of Western South Africa is equally famous, containing an incredible diversity of flowering shrubs, succulents and bulbs. Join Evan Meyer of Theodore Payne Foundation as he shares stories of his travels throughout California, and a recent expedition to the Western Cape of South Africa. Evan will compare these two remarkable parts of the world and describe how gardeners can find inspiration, ideas, and lots of cool new plants in their wild landscapes.
