Succulent plants have always been popular with enthusiasts and specialists, but have recently become recognized and accepted as some of the most colorful and architecturally pleasing creatures of the ornamental plant realm. The fact that they are easy, water-wise, and otherwise very forgiving of negligent owners, is just icing on the cake. This book will provide you with an overview of how to work with soft succulents – care, feeding, combinations in bowls and the landscape, as well as an overview of the major players in the various genera – aeoniums, echeverias, sedums, crassulas, and more. Written and photographed by Jeff Moore, a succulent nursery owner with over 25 years of experience, this book will tell you what you need to know and leave you with a list of new succulent treasures to seek out and enjoy.
