Nothing beats succulents for variety, colour, form, ease of cultivation, container suitability and the wow! factor that comes from plants with such spectacular shapes and textures. The first edition of Succulents for the Contemporary Garden, now out of print, introduced the succulent lover to 60 genera and hundreds of species of these fabulous plants. This new edition completely repackages all that invaluable material with a look suited to the times. Useful for both beginners and experts, it's a treasure trove of species. The author's expert advice guarantees successful growing, in all New Zealand climates and environments.
