"Succulent plants offer dazzling possibilities for garden design. From the undulating lines of Agave americana 'Marginata' to the frilly-leaved rosettes of echeveria hybrids, succulents come in dramatic, sculptural shapes, intriguing textures, and sizzling colors. Bronze, blue, silver, crimson, chartreuse, and lavender leaves set off brilliant, long-lasting blooms." "Better still, these elegant plants, which survive drought by storing water in their leaves, stems, or roots, require only minimal maintenance to remain lush and alluring year round. Gardeners in any climate can cultivate succulents to stunning effect. Featuring the work of more than 50 professional garden designers and creative homeowners in dozens of private and public succulent gardens and containers, this complete design compendium is as practical as it is inspirational." "Illustrated with over 300 photographs, it gives design and cultivation basics for paths, borders, slopes, and pots; hundreds of succulent plant recommendations, and descriptions of 90 easy-care, drought-tolerant companion of plants. A chapter on growing succulents in cold climates identifies those that thrive in zones 8 and below."--BOOK JACKET.
