    From Editor: In the issue 6(22) there was an article about a construction of a cacti rock garden in wet climate (Fort Loderdale, Miami area, Florida, USA). Now we present you pictures of a succulent rock garden built in Samara, Russia.

This garden was built by one of the schools in a heartland region of Russia. A distinguishing feature of the rock garden is the choice of plants - the succulents that can be found in the wild on the territory of Russia: Sedum, Sempervivum, Agave. Construction of such a garden is easily achievable and affordable. The plants are in bloom from the last snow until the first snow (from the middle of April until November).

    We express the sincere gratitude to Anatoly Mihaltsov (Omsk) and Ludmila Presnyakova (Voronezh) for help with species definitions of the rock garden plants.
