From the Inside Flap:

Succulents, with their striking forms, unusual colors, and easy care reputation, are becoming an increasingly important design element in many contemporary gardens. Whether planted en masse, as specimens in the garden or featured in containers, they have much to offer landscapers and home gardeners. Until recently, the range of succulents available commercially was relatively limited, but nurseries and garden centers are responding to the demand, and more and more species and cultivars are now available.

Succulents for the Contemporary Garden is a book for beginners, enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike, presenting old favorites along with an enticing range of less-common, more collectable examples of these intriguing plants. Descriptions and cultivation information are given for hundreds of species and cultivars in more than 60 genera—from Adenia to Yucca—helping gardeners to choose plants best suited to their design requirements and garden conditions.

Illustrated throughout with 350 color photographs, this book will inspire gardners and succulent connoisseurs to seek out more of these wonderful plants.
