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 name just 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 an inspiring idea. 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.

Baldwin has such an eye for form, movement and color that it's just plain fun to follow along through the book and see what she sees! Truly, she is an inspiration, and I can't recommend this book highly enough. It is so well organized, and covers just about everything. I'm so glad I found this delight.

The book itself is breathtaking in its beauty. You can see the author's expertise with photography as well as her plant and design knowledge throughout. My first use of the book was to learn more about the succulents I have been growing, and how to help them thrive (some can tolerate lower light conditions, for example). I repotted and arranged them, and then have moved forward to purchase some new plants for further experimentation.
While the book could serve as a coffee table item, please do use it to put together artful arrangements of these most stunning plants!
I love it...........thank you for your very fast service. I am enjoying each chapter. Lydia
