The speaker for the November meeting will be Karen Zimmerman from the Huntington Botanical Garden in San Marino, California. The title of her talk will be “Aloes on My Mind: Exploring Aloe Hybrids One Generation at a Time.” She will discuss hybridization techniques as a way of increasing cultivars for the horticultural trade, focusing on her extensive work with Aloes.
Karen Zimmerman has loved and grown plants from a very young age thanks to her grandparents. Succulents became a major passion in 1994, and has never slowed down. She has been with the Huntington Library, Art Galleries and Botanical Gardens since 1999, and as succulent plant propagator for the Desert Collections since Nov. 2001. Aloe hybridizing became a “hobby” within her job since 2002. She has had 10 hybrids published and distributed through the ISI program with many more on the horizon. Photography is another passion that she brings to her work, and has had many photos published in journals, a few books and a photography magazine.
Please join us at the Austin Area Garden Center, Zilker Botanical Garden on November 16. Refreshments and conversation will begin at 7:00 p.m., with the presentation beginning at 7:30 p.m.
