Succulents for the holidays

Newer Older

Photograph of small mixed succulents in my garden. Homage to cactiphobia.

These are all low growing or trailing species, suitable for low garden borders or used between specimen plantings. The varieties here, which grow 4 - 6" tall, also suitable for containers, strawberry pots and living wreaths. There is one plant I've not labeled; see if you can spot it and label it.

    Great information on the succulents, so I can shop for the same ones (tho the selection is slimmer around here in spring, but who knows, there is mail order too) And Robert, that is a great shot of the plants also! :D

    Thank you Barbara, Patricia and Martin. I love the colors too; one of my fascinations with succulents. I'm stickler for proper plant ID's Martin, just like you are.

    Jan, these little guys are a lot of fun. All of them petite and low growing, one could arrange them in a number of creative ways. A wreath maybe or even a topiary.

    Thank you Rekha, Heloisa and Kristin!

    Why thanks Candy. The above plants are intended for a vertical planting much like your strawberry pot. I simply staged these low growing, size appropriate succulents here for the photo ID's. There is an additional succulent I intentionally did not label above. Can you locate it and label it? Win a trip to Maui!... lol.

    Ruth, you know I've gone succulent crazy for the sake of sustainability in my garden. The resulting beauty a nice side effect. I've been influenced by so many great plantings, such as this one and another one of yours. Thank you.

    Thanks Meryem. Nice to see you around these parts. Your succulent garden in Turkey is always rocking 365.

    I have always wanted a live succulent wreath after seeing my first one in Sunset. We don't see many varieties available in NY. I really love this grouping and your photo of it.

    Beautiful! The planting looks like a collection of living jewels. I too would like to make a succulent wreath some day. I've seen some beautiful ones in my gardening magazines.

    Hey Robert! Maybe everyone will like to see the Succulent wreath. Especially just_ginge2007!

    Hey, it's my first anchor tag! Thanks to you.
