Cacti and succulents make some of the most interesting displays imaginable, in gardens of almost any type and size. And, these resilient, low-maintenance plants can take almost anything the climate throws at them. Whether used as striking accents in containers or as part of a total garden transformation, cacti have a modern, fresh feel. Plan your own succulent garden, with a longtime expert's instructions on choosing plants, preparing a scheme, dealing with weather conditions, adding special features, and using a variety of settings--scree gardens, rockeries, patios and decking, water features, and more. Throughout, the author's own drawings, along with dozens of luscious photographs, will guide and tempt you. A directory introduces 165 featured plants, divided into three sections by hardiness. Each plant has at least one close-up photograph, information on size, and a detailed description of its characteristics to help you in your selection.
