The Genus Echeveria

Author: John Pilbeam

The author begins with short accounts about species in habitat, cultivation and a checklist of accepted species. Chapters include cultivation, classification, synonyms and more. The main section of the book is the alphabetic commentary on the illustrated species. 140 species are fully discussed and described, giving original description source, distribution and cultivation information. Over 1/2 of the 474 outstanding color photos are pictured close-up in habitat, giving another dimension to the understanding of this popular genus, as well as an idea of the conditions in which they grow, and how they sometimes differ from their appearance in cultivation. 474 color photos, 19 color distribution maps (showing the spread of the genus from southern Texas, through Mexico and central America, as far south as possibly Argentina), and 100 small half-tone line drawings illustrating a glossary of terms. "A most complete and thoroughly beautiful book, never to be duplicated".
