The Timber Press Guide to Succulent Plants of the World

A Comprehensive Reference to More than 2000 Species

Author: Fred Dortort

Among the most intricate examples of life on Earth, succulents have an almost magical ability to flourish in environments of unremitting harshness. This tenacity, along with their dazzling and sometimes otherworldly appearance, has placed them in the ranks of the most popular plants being grown today.

It can be difficult, however, to come by reliable information on the origins, cultural needs, and correct identity of these diverse and fascinating plants. The Timber Press Guide to Succulent Plants of the World remedies this need. In contrast to both introductory and very advanced works, it is intended to appeal to the entire continuum of people interested in succulents.

A comprehensive guide to more than 2000 succulents, this groundbreaking book begins with an overview of where succulents are found and how they live, along with information on growing and caring for them. The remaining chapters consist of comprehensive, richly illustrated descriptions of the plants, including both familiar species as well as less common, more exotic plants. Each entry includes information on the plant's native habitat, its cultivation requirements, and its horticultural potential.

As useful to novice growers as to collectors and those with an existing interest in succulents, this comprehensive, accessible volume will be the standard reference for years to come.
