PRESENTER FOR FEBRUARY IS: Greg Krehel, – “Freaky Flowers: Echinopsis Flowers in Bloom”
In this talk, cactus enthusiast Greg Krehel will show us numerous of his timelapses capturing the stunning beauty of Echinopsis flowers. We’ll see the flowers of over 25 different Echinopsis hybrids bloom. Many of the timelapses include the entire life of the flowers from blooming until wilting and/or capture surprising aspects of the blooming/wilting process. Greg’s work has been featured by National Geographic, the New York Times, the Huntington Library and Gardens, the Singapore Botanic Gardens, etc. This is a very unique presentation that you will not want to miss. Greg grew up on the Penninsula, so lets give him a warm welcome back from Florida.
