The Drakenberg Mountains are on the border between Lesotho and South Africa.  They provide a high altitude environment with a relatively unexplored region with unique succulents, bulbs, and alpine plants.  This talk will be a visit to a few localities, all with incredible scenery and fantastic plants.  Habitats for Crassulas, Euphorbias, Ledebourias and other plants capable of withstanding a challenging, high-altitude environment and near-daily summer rainfall will be shown.

Tom Glavich is one of the co-chairs of the Inter-City Cactus and Succulent Show, and the author of the “Beginner’s Guide” series of articles in the CSSA newsletter, “To The Point.”  He has been growing succulents and bulbs for over thirty years.  He lives in Altadena, and is a member of most of the Los Angeles area succulent societies.
