The Timber Press Guide to Succulent Plants of the World: A Comprehensive Reference to More Than 2000 Species Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The plants are organized into 28 intuitively logical groups, such as succulent euphorbias, mesembryanthemums, bulbs, succulent trees, aloes, agaves, and haworthias. Each entry includes information on the plant's native habitat, its cultivation requirements, and its horticultural potential. As useful to novice growers as to collectors and those with an existing interest in succulents, this will be the standard reference for years to come.
