About this book

Along with other succulents, cactus have surged in popularity because they're easy to grow, bear stunning flowers, offer architectural shapes, and are ideal for low-water gardens. The Gardener's Guide to Cactus shows just how easy, hardy, and rewarding cactus can be for all gardeners.

Scott Calhoun highlights the best cactus available – with information on growth and care, tips on growing in containers, and information on pests and hardiness zones – and shows how they can make striking additions to the garden or serve as dazzling container plants.
