Library Spotlight - “Succulents for the Contemporary Garden”
Interested in adding some striking, yet water-wise, plants to your garden? Succulents for the Contemporary Garden, by Yvonne Cave, describes hundreds of succulents that could add color, texture and interest to any garden in the area. This book doesn't include cacti, but instead focuses on succulents that are more user-friendly (or at least more finger-friendly!). Hundreds of beautiful photographs show the huge variety in this category of plants. Great for gardeners new to the topic or for connoisseurs looking for a special addition to their garden.
Find this book in the Arboretum Library here or stop by to check out this book or the many others the library has on cacti and succulents.
