The new publication, “Dudleyas,” (co-authored by Jeff Moore, Jeremy Spath and Kelly Griffin) features most (if not all) of the currently described species of this California and Baja genus. In this presentation, Jeff will share images from the book of plants in habitat (as well as cultivation) with advice on growing plants in cultivation and an emphasis on conservation.  The projected book arrival date will hopefully be May 2024.

All photographs were taken by the three co-authors as well as contributors from the Dudleya community. Kelly and Jeremy have visited and photographed nearly all species in situ—most of the habitat photos are quite stunning, often with beautiful ocean or cliffside backdrops.

I became interested in succulents in the early 80s after seeing a display of Rudy Lime’s bonsai succulents at the San Diego County Fair. I sold succulents in my spare time at street fairs and farmer’s markets for a few years before opening Solana Succulents in 1992, at its present location.  I am primarily a succulent retail shop – with the benefit of being located close to some of the premier growers in California and a long list of friends and contacts in the business. I used to do a bit of succulent landscaping, but have phased out of doing much of that anymore, aside from some consulting. I wrote my first book in 2014, followed by three more, then a book on Agaves co-written with Jeremy Spath.  “Dudleyas” will be my sixth book,  with Jeremy Spath and Kelly Griffin.
