It is possible to create a wonderful succulent garden in all sorts of different climates, but the particular plants used will vary considerably according to their climatic tolerances. For gardeners in the Bay Area, it is a challenge to know which plants will or will not work here. Even the difference between Oakland and Walnut Creek is a significant one, because winter cold in inland parts of the Bay Area is more severe than in more coastal locations. Join Brian Kemble, Curator, for this webinar where he will highlight succulent plants which can succeed in places where winter lows get down to as much as 25° F (this corresponds to USDA zone 9b). When selecting plants to use in your garden, it is very helpful to know which plants will come through just fine when a cold snap occurs.
