Succulent Plants of the World

by Timber Press on November 1, 2011

in Gardening

I’m excited to announce that The Timber Press Guide to Succulent Plants of the World by Fred Dortort is now available!

A comprehensive guide to more than 2000 succulents, this groundbreaking book begins with an overview of where succulents are found and how they live, along with information on growing and caring for them. The remaining chapters consist of comprehensive, richly illustrated descriptions of the plants, including both familiar species as well as less common, more exotic plants. Each entry includes information on the plant’s native habitat, its cultivation requirements, and its horticultural potential.

As useful to novice growers as to collectors and those with an existing interest in succulents, this comprehensive, accessible volume will be the standard reference for years to come.

In the wild, Crassula mesembryanthemopsis stays hidden under grit and sand.
