Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like the other titles in this series, this handsome full-color book is accessible but provides sufficient depth and detail to satisfy more experienced cactus enthusiasts. It includes an extensive A-Z listing, with useful information on cultivation and propagation.
