Mary Parisi - Going to Sedum

Mary Parisi, well known to all of us as a specialist in Gasterias and Haworthias, is now getting deeply into a new group, the genera Sedum and Sempervivum of the family Crassulaceae. The genus Sedum alone may have some 600 species! Mary's knowledge and enthusiasm will help us understand this generally overlooked group of plants. Hopefully she will be bringing plants for sale. Maybe even a Sedum or two.

We will be having a POTLUCK for the May meeting.
