About this book

Succulents offer dazzling possibilities, requiring only minimal maintenance and very little water to remain lush and alluring year-round. And no one knows them better than the Queen of Succulents, Debra Lee Baldwin.

This new, completely revised second edition of her bestselling classic is a design compendium that is as practical as it is inspirational. Designing with Succulents shares design and cultivation basics; hundreds of succulent plant recommendations; and profiles of 50 easy-care, drought-tolerant companion plants. Featured gardens from designers and creative homeowners show the stunning potential of these otherworldly plants. Lavishly illustrated with nearly 400 photographs, you will find everything you need to visualize, create, and nurture a thriving, water-smart succulent garden.

"A masterly book about the creative use of succulents in modern landscapes."
– John Bagnasco, host of Garden America radio show

"Takes the mystery out of these fascinating plants. The book is well illustrated, full of good information, and eminently readable."
– Brian Kemble, curator of the Ruth Bancroft Garden; board member of Cactus and Succulent Society of America

"Another classic with amazing photos. From images that show you what can be done, to explanations that help you do it, this is a must-have for succulent gardeners."
– Ken Altman, president of Altman Plants

"Many people know about succulents, but using them in the landscape is another matter. Designing with Succulents shows us how; it's inspiring, practical, and complete – a treasure for any gardener who loves these otherworldly beauties."
– Kathleen N. Brenzel, Sunset
