Treasures of the Sierra Madre, part 2: San Luis Potosi, Tamaulipas and Southern Nuevo Leon
by Brian Kemble
Kemble has returned again and again to Mexico to investigate its amaz-ingly rich flora of succulent plants. This program covers 3
states in northeastern Mexico, an area where the Sierra Madre Oriental is a dominating geographical feature. In a presentation in
April 2016, Brian showed photos of the same mountain range farther south, in the states of Hidalgo, Queretaro and Guanajuato, so this
might be considered a northward extension of the area covered in that talk. Plants encountered include Agaves, many different kinds
of cacti, Echeverias, Hechtias and Dasylirions.
In addition to being VP of the San Francisco Succulent & Cactus Society
and a board member of the CSSA, Brian is the Curator at the Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek.
