Smart, Gorgeous, Sensible Succulent Gardens
During her 20-year career as a succulent fashionista, Debra Lee Baldwin has seen it all. From front yards that sadly illustrate what-not-to-do to homeowner-designed masterpieces, Debra shows us the good, the bad and the magnificent. You’ll be inspired, amused, awed by beauty, impressed by practicality, and likely never see succulent gardens in the same way again. With humor, common sense and horticultural know-how, Debra deepens our knowledge and appreciation of these versatile, low-water plants. She'll sign books before and after her presentation.
