Cacti and Succulents for Cold Climates: 274 Outstanding Species for Challenging Conditions Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There are many reasons to grow cacti and other succulents—they're drought-tolerant, low-maintenance, and they look great. But what about hardiness? For those who thought that these spectacular plants were only for gardens in California and the Southwest, guess again—hundreds are fully cold-hardy and can be grown outdoors from New England to British Columbia, Wisconsin to Texas.

Cacti and Succulents for Cold Climates is filled with inspirational portraits of 274 plants that can be used to create drought-tolerant gardens, as well as tips from regional experts who have mastered the art of growing cacti in parts of the country not usually associated with high temperatures or a scarcity of water. Expert Leo Chance describes how to prepare planting beds, how to get plants well established, how to handle cacti during planting, how to protect plants from cold winters, and when and how much to water.

A member of the Cactus and Succulent Society of America and the Colorado Cactus and Succulent Society, Leo lectures frequently about cacti and succulents, as well as water-wise gardening.
