About the Event
Hope you can join us at the CSSA November Gathering! For those unable to attend the hall we will still be Live Streaming to the CSSA Members-Only Group and Zooming (details on how to join can be found below).
Our Member Speaker this month is Noelene Tomlinson - Adromischus
Adromischus is a genus of at least 28 species of small clumping leaf succulents from South Africa and Namibia. Prior to revision of the genus by Hellmut Tölken (who lives in Adelaide) a larger number of species were recognized. The genus has been divided into five sections according to their flowers. This genus was named in 1852 by Charles Antoine Lemaire.
Noelene was a CSSA Committee member including as vice-President for about 10 years, has been the Librarian for about 17 years, and is a Life member of the Society. She has grown and propagated cacti and succulents for 60 years. Her special interest is Crassulaceae, many of her photographs are on www.crassulaceae.ch. Over the past 10 years, she has given an annual talk at a CSSA meeting, on a particular genus, with photographs she has taken, and brief notes on each plant, to be published later in the Society’s journals. She has also contributed many other articles since she joined the CSSA in 2000. Noelene gave Powerpoint presentations about succulents to a CSS NSW meeting, CSS Get-Togethers in Mildura in 2015 and Gosford in 2017, and Succulenticon 2018 in Perth.
