Flowering Succulents


They can be a wonderful hardy addition to existing gardens - filling in the gaps - or replacing plants which are not as hardy at surviving in the hotter months, as succulents can certainly do. They are suitable for mass planting and can be made into all sorts of feature garden areas. The possibilities are boundless.

Some grow well with certain other plants such as roses, whereas other types grow well with bulbs. This is valuable information to learn!
