Other Succulents

View larger image of 'The Gardener's Guide to Cactus'Calhoun, Scott -  The Gardener's Guide to Cactus
An introductory book covering 100 of the most attractive species with an emphasis on their use in landscaping and large pot cultivation. Aimed at the popular market, you have to like the common names under which the plants are listed – my favourite is “Lemon Pledge-Scented Pincushion” (for Mam baumii). Nevertheless there is much of interest in this book which starts with the usual introductory sections before going on to the plants organised by plant form and the information includes culinary uses! The colour photos include both plants in cultivation – in pots as well as bedded out - and habitat and there are some impressive clumps and attractive examples so well worth the inexpensive cost. 2012 9 x 8 227 pages

View larger image of 'Pachyforms - a Guide to Growing Pachycaul and Caudiciform Plants'de Vosjoli -  Pachyforms - a Guide to Growing Pachycaul and Caudiciform Plants
This book covers the world of Pachyforms – “fat” plants. The introductory sections cover what is a Pachyform and the families they areou found in, and a 60 page guide to growing them. The bulk of the book is a 160 page pictorial A-Z of the plants with one or two colour photos per page, and shows some quite amazing plants. The last 60 pages give some descriptions and propagation and cultivation advice of the plants illustrated. In all there are over 350 colour photographs, and the book is good value. 319 pages 2004 10 x 7

View larger image of 'Pachyforms II : Bonsai Succulents'de Vosjoli & Lime -  Pachyforms II : Bonsai Succulents
Following on from the first volume this even larger book concentrates on the ways that these plants can be trained and displayed using an approach based on Bonsai growing. It discusses which plants to select, what types of containers to use and other items such as wood or stone, training and subsequent maintenance, and whilst well illustrated in itself, the following 118 pages are a photo gallery of a wide range of superb Bonsai’d plants. And if that is not enough, the final 120 pages continue the photographic gallery of many Pachyform plants started in the first volume – there are over 500 colour photos in all. Amongst the plants are not just some familiar old friends and others which would be expected, but there are also quite a number of little known and seldom seen (at least in the UK) plants. As the first volume, it is a remarkable book. 2007 10 x 7 387 pages

View larger image of 'Succulents of Southern Africa'Fransden, Robin -  Succulents of Southern Africa
The author has set out to produce the most comprehensive guide to these plants yet produced, and whilst it doesn’t cover every known specie it includes a tremendous number of them. After a brief introduction to the area and plants, there are also brief biographies of the main personalities who discovered and made the plants better known. The vast majority of the book covers the plants by family with concise descriptions on one page and colour photos, which have come from a number of sources, on the opposite page to the text. A glossary and selected bibliography are also included. It is a substantial book and has certainly achieved its aim. 2017 10 ½ x 8 ½ 504 pages

View larger image of 'Stapeliads:  Refreshed'Pilbeam, John -  Stapeliads: Refreshed
Confused by all the new genera names which have appeared in recent years for these plants, and the differences in opinions in classification? Then you’re no longer alone – the writer of so many books on cacti & other succulent plants has taken up the challenge to not only help us to get to grips with the various classifications, but more importantly for the grower and collector of these distinctive plants what the plants and flowers actually look like. Taking no view on which classification to follow, the genera are arranged and documented so that the reader can work out what its name is in whichever classification the reader wishes to know. And for the ordinary grower who isn’t concerned about classification it has 686 colour photos and for those you would like to obtain you can find out under what name(s) it might be found in catalogues. For those who just like plants it is a marvellous picture book. As ever from the author and the publisher (BCSS) it is very well produced. Will be a classic for a very long time like the author’s other books. Updated and expanded edition of the 2010 original with more pages and pictures with names brought even more up to date than before. 2014 11 x 8 ½ 221 pages

A marvellous book on these little known mainly East African plants which last had a book devoted to them nearly 50 years ago. Although they’ve been recently reclassified as Euphorbias, the author sticks to their more familiar Monadenium names (except for two species named since the reclassification) with the new name consigned to the end of their descriptions and an appendix. After a brief introduction on what a Monadenium is, the majority of the book is an A-Z of the species with habitat and description and concise cultivation comments where known. The book finishes with a brief general cultivation section. It is all very well illustrated with many good colour photos and some botanical illustrations, some quite large format. Another very good Cactus & Co publication. 2010 11 ½ x 8 ¼ 109 pages

View larger image of 'Haworthia for the Collector'Schulz, Rudolf -  Haworthia for the Collector
Haworthias are very popular these days, both for the species and unusually in the C&S world also for cultivars and hybrids. Although there has been a lot published in recent years on these plants, there has been little for the average or enthusiastic collector since Pilbeam’s book was published 25 years ago before colour photos became universal. So this new book which covers many of the most attractive cultivars as well as the species and illustrated in colour is sure to be welcome. Brief introductory sections cover their characteristics and habitat, after which the main part of the book looks at the species and cultivars following Bayer’s 2008 Classification with separate sections for forms which don’t fit neatly with a species and inter generic hybrids. Final sections provide views on where the cultivars might develop in the future, variegations, close up views of leaves and cross section, cultivation, pests etc and finally propagation. All well presented as we have come to expect from this author and publisher. 2009 11 x 8 ¾ 240 pages

View larger image of 'Tree Aloes of Africa'van Jaarsveld & Judd -  Tree Aloes of Africa
First in a planned series of books covering all the Aloe family – including Gasteria, Haworthia etc – this covers what in latest classification are now termed Aloidendron, six species of Tree Aloe, plus the closely related Kumara plicatilis - what was previously known as Aloe plicatilis. As with all Ernst van Jaarsveld books, there is much wider information than just the plants themselves. It starts with an explanation about the background to the reclassification and botany, before going in to the history of the plants discovery by early settlers and explorers until the present day. Chapters then cover their distribution and ecology, and cultivation.

Following on from his first book on these plants 20 years ago, this is everything you’d hope from this well known botanist. It covers the history of their discovery and cultivation, his hunting for them in their natural habitats, garden uses in suitable climates, hybrids, distribution and ecology before going on to describe each of the 55 known and accepted SA species (and a couple of other) each illustrated with colour photos and a full page botanical illustration by Vicky Thomas. Maybe not the most popular of plants, but Fernwood Press have produced a book that will be enjoyed by many who haven’t previously been captivated by them. 2006 12 x 9 ¼ 176 pages
