This year’s calendar will be dedicated to the succulent plants that grow in the Botanical Garden. Succulents are fleshy plants that store water in various above-ground structures, such as leaves or stems. Most of these plants grow in deserts and other dry environments, and their succulence enables them to dilute the salty ions retained from the saline water in the soil. Tel-Aviv University’s Botanical Garden hosts a large succulent collection, comprised of above one thousand specimens, including cacti, yuccas, and giant spurges. The Botanical Garden’s staff and a devoted group of volunteer photographers have documented these beautiful plants over the years and seasons.
The calendars will be available from the Garden’s office from September.
