Whether explosive displays of columnar cacti and brilliant wildflowers cascading down sun-bathed hill-sides, meditative, botanical expressions of an organic, spine-laden geometry set within the quiet, earthen walls of a Spanish colonial mission, or twilit, verdant groves evoking a prelapsarian topography—this book captures the numinous light and beauty of I 8 unique and rarely photographed private and public desert gardens between Santa Barbara and San Diego. Featuring the most important desert garden in the world at the Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino, as well as the Moorten Botanical Gardens in Palm Springs, Balboa Park in San Diego, and many exquisite private gardens, the volume celebrates the sculpturesque charms of cacti, aloes, and other suc-culent flora that have adapted to the extreme conditions of the desert. Combining spectacular garden views in idyllic set-tings and ravishingly beautiful images of particular specimens—with text by the renowned desert gar-den expert Gary Lyons that balances the poetics and technical aspects of this garden genre—the book serves as an inspirational guide to these horticultural treasures. Because interest in desert gardens contin-ues to grow dramatically, the book also includes the addresses and visiting hours of gardens open to the public, and provides a bibliography of what one needs to know in order to create one's own.
