This book is a most unique volume, suggesting indoor and outdoor projects for easy-care cactus and succulents in all climates, all with stems no longer than four inches. The designs are easy to reproduce and invite your own creativity. The contents include seasonal arrangements, landscapes, weddings and parties, and outdoor projects, such as an outdoor table. The basics of succulent care and propagation are included.

Imagine a dog-house roof, terrarium, a woman’s hat, and a colonial door with panels filled with colorful sedums. The mechanics behind these designs include a low-temperature glue gun, tape, natural fiber ribbon, floral wire and wire cutter, all common to floral arrangements, and here used mainly for sedums. The photographs clearly illustrate how to use the tools. This book should be in every flower arranger’s library.
