Paul Heiple - Mesembs and More

An interest in succulent plants was a natural extension of Mr. Heiple's background in Geology. His professional excursions to geological sites have given him an opportunity to observe succulent plants in several of their natural habitats. Additionally, he has built gardens in three disparate climates, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and California.

How could someone who makes his profession studying rocks resist Mesembs, the plants that mimic rocks? For Paul Heiple, the attraction proved irresistible.
