Softcover, and chock full of pictures of projects for your garden, this delightful book is a fun read, and one you'll revisit lots...and I'm not just saying that because I was asked for my collaboration.

Jovibarba species; these are all very similar, and tend to make a colony or carpet of tiny rosettes thickly covering the surface of the soil.

Sedum pachyclados – low growing pale green notched rosettes

Sedum oreganum – lime green tinged bronze puffy leaves on red stems

Sedum glaucophyllum – greeny blue low growing rosettes

Sedum spathyphyllum 'Capo Blanco' – white, highly pruinosed foliage makes a mound

Sempervivum arachnoideum Hookeri – pale green tinged with red in cooler temperatures

Sempervivum 'Maria Laach' – medium sized black tipped rosettes
