Designing with Succulents
Inspiring, practical, and complete—a treasure for any gardener who loves these otherworldly beauties.

Designing with Succulents shares design and cultivation basics; hundreds of succulent plant recommendations; and profiles of 50 easy-care, drought-tolerant companion plants. Lavishly illustrated with 400 photographs, you will find everything you need to visualize, create, and nurture a thriving, water-smart succulent garden.
