There’s more to succulents than the cactus. In fact, there are hundreds of varieties in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Succulents differ from other plant varieties in that they store water in their leaves, allowing them to survive in harsh weather conditions. Drought-tolerant and easy to care for, succulents are an ideal plant for both avid gardeners and beginners alike.

Curious about succulents? Get a personal introduction at the Succulent Extravaganza, presented by Greater Sacramento Area’s High-Hand Nursery. Guests can browse hundreds of succulents for sale and visit a “succulent bar” where they select their own pot and succulents and create a customized masterpiece.

Sunset Magazine’s Succulent Guru Robin Stockwell will be speaking at the event, as well as signing copies of his book, “Succulents: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing, Designing, and Growing 200 Easy Care Plants.” In his lectures, Robin will enlighten guests about the wonders of succulents and how he came to be known as “the succulent guy.” Lectures are free and offered at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Register at http://www.highhand.com.
