Welcome! This site, as well as my three books on succulents, YouTube videos, newsletters, and more are dedicated to helping you grow and enjoy a wide variety of “plants that drink responsibly” in landscapes, gardens, containers and design projects. Enjoy, and thanks for visiting! ~ Debra Lee Baldwin
It’s the 10th anniversary, completely revised and updated, second edition of the book that launched global interest in succulents: Designing with Succulents. Illustrated with 400 gorgeous photos—basically a brand new book—it encapsulates the essentials of the original along with a decade’s worth of appealing and innovative ideas. View the book’s 2-minute YouTube trailer.
At 10:45 each day, to celebrate my new book’s release, I’ll present “Designing with Colorful, Textural Succulents.” Part One is Friday; Part Two, Saturday (different presentations).
Watch my Highlights of the 2016 Succulent Extravaganza (4:20).
