Description

With their colourful leaves, sculptural shapes, and simple care, succulents are beautiful yet forgiving plants for pots.

In portable gardens, these dry-climate jewels - which include but are not limited to cacti - can be brought indoors in winter and so can thrive anywhere in the world.

In this inspiring compendium, the popular author of "Designing with Succulents" provides everything beginners and experienced gardeners need to know to create stunning container displays of exceptionally waterwise plants.

The extensive palette includes delicate sedums, frilly echeverias, cascading senecios, edgy agaves, and fat-trunked beaucarneas, to just name a few.

Easy-to-follow, expert tips explain soil mixes, overwintering, propagation, and more. Define your individual style as you effectively combine patterns, colors, textures, and forms.

Discover how top designers interpret the dramatic options, in ideas ranging from exquisite plant-and-pot combinations to extraordinary topiaries and bonsai.

Expand your repertoire with plump-leaved plants that resemble pebbles, stars, and undersea creatures.

Short on space? Create vertical gardens and hanging baskets, and use daisylike rosettes in wall displays.

Each of the more than 300 photographs offers inspiring ideas.

A-to-Z descriptions cover 350 of the best succulents, plus companion plants.

Whether your goal is a gorgeous potted garden for a sunny windowsill or outdoor living area - or simply making great gifts - this is a comprehensive primer for creating vibrant, living works of art.
