The Genus Aeonium

Marco Cristini, The Genus Aeonium, AIAS, Rome 2022, 225 pp. (ISBN: 978-88-901345-6-2).

This book provides the most complete information on aeoniums available anywhere. It effectively bridges the gap between scientific descriptions scattered in botanical journals and monographs, and the general books on succulents, which often only fleetingly mention a few Aeonium species. This book describes all currently accepted taxa and is designed to aid the reader to identify and observe them in habitat thanks to the detailed information about the distribution of each taxon. Moreover, it deals extensively with aspects of cultivation ranging from garden uses and propagation to care and health. Generously illustrated with more than 250 high quality photos, this well-researched book will appeal to succulent collectors, travellers, botanists, horticulturists, gardeners and all those interested in knowing more about this fascinating genus.

Price: 50 Euros (including shipping for Italy, the EU and UK). Shipping outside the EU/UK costs around 15 euros, depending on the country.
