In this book Gordon Rowley addresses the world of monstruose, cristate and variegated succulents, including chimeras and plants showing other kind of anomalies like abnormal proliferation, spiral torsions and absence of spines. 

With this unique, fascinating book, Gordon leads the reader into the exploration of a poorly understood maze of phenomena, dealing with each situation with his unmatched style and accompanying his plain explanation of these complex subjects with outstanding images of plants in habitat and cultivation, spanning across all relevant botanical families.

The book includes an extensive chapter on cultivation and a chapter on nomenclature, a must have for all succulent lovers.


We are sorry, but we cannot send the book free of charge to members outside Italy, because the postage is too expensive.
