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.
