Cactus: the most beautiful species and their care

Book Cover
Average Rating
Barron's Educational Series,
Pub. Date:
Prickly and frequently taking strange shapes, cacti often thrive when given minimal care--and sometimes languish when owners "nurse them to death." This handsomely illustrated book introduces plant growers to the basics of cactus care and cultivation, then presents an alphabetized directory of roughly 50 varieties--from Acanthocalycium to Uebelmannia pectinifera. Only avid plant lovers need remember the scientific names. More practical for plant growers, and shown in stunning photographs, is the magnificent variety of cactus flowers that blossom from the unusual and fascinating shapes of these plants.
