The book contains information about succulents in cultivation, in nature and then the different types, such as; Crassula, Echeveria and Sedum. There is use of their common and Latin names and they are organized by family and genus. The reader is introduced to some basic taxonomy and terms. The pictures are of beautiful specimens, both cultivated and in the wild.
Most of the content does describe the native habitats of the plants. There is some help of what method some of the varieties can be cultivated. There is a specific chapter that gives information on soil, water and propagation; but for the most part if you are looking for a book that gives you very precise and detailed step by steps on how to grow these in your home and yard, you really need to look elsewhere.
What this book gives, for the most part are descriptions of the plants in the wild and what their natural habitat is. There is also an index of the plant names.
Ok, after further review this is very well done. A lot of work and research went into this book. I changed my rating to five. I was only thinking of my use. I will use this book to further my education of succulents. Also in the back there is a index that will prove very usefull....Sorry, I can and will use this.
