Everything you need to create a beautiful, waterwise garden
The world of succulent design has advanced so significantly since the first edition of Designing with Succulents was released in 2007. This 10th celebratory tenth anniversary edition is a complete rewrite—it beautifully reveals design and cultivation basics, offers hundreds of plant recommendations, and shares stunning, verdant gardens filled with these living sculptures.
When I was writing the first edition, many varieties we now take for granted, such as echeverias, were nearly unknown. Since then, interest in succulents has surged. Water-smart gardeners are driven by ongoing drought and wildfire concerns. Stylish gardeners have become interested in incorporating form and foliage. Time-stressed homeowners want low-maintenance plants that look the same for months. And people everywhere have discovered how chic and fresh succulents look indoors and in containers.
You, too, can create the succulent garden of your dreams. Whether you’re a longtime fan of these fleshy leaved plants or new to them, it’s my pleasure to share with you the beauty, practicality, and creativity inherent in designing with succulents.
—Debra Lee Baldwin.
