Full information on cultivation and propagation is provided.

They have included crisp photos and plenty of descriptive information. Moreover, the authors detail propagation and cultural requirements; despite the plants natural affinity for arid southern locations, they are frequently cold hardy, and they will often grow just fine in wetter, humid climates.
