SACXS Monthly Meeting

Thursday, April 17, 2024 

at the San Antonio Garden Center

Title: The Central Andean Altiplano

Program Description: 

In this presentation, Stefan takes us on the high road into the Andes to discover otherworldly plants and landscapes. The Spanish word "Altiplano" translates to “High Plain” in English and is the world’s second largest area of high mountain plateau after Tibet. The Altiplano territory spans across Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, and Chile, where the fascinating topography is home to a diversity of cactus genera, including Oreocereus, Browningia, Neowerdermannia, Soehrensia, Haageocereus, Leucostele, Cumulopuntia, Maihueniopsis, Austrocylindropuntia, Yavia, Aylostera, Lobivia, Airampoa and Corryocactus. Many other botanical alpine wonders such as Azorella compacta and native wildflowers and animals also call the Altiplano territory and associated foothills home. 



Meeting also features Auction & Raffle Plants

Join us for an informative and enjoyable evening.
