Our Favorite Succulents
We love succulent plants. They’re fun, easy to maintain, and incredibly versatile. From office cubicles to sprawling Southern porches, succulents can bring fresh greenery into any environment. Known for their thick and fleshy leaves, succulents tend to thrive in dry climates without lots of humidity. In the South, this means that most types of succulents can grow easily inside. While, like all plans, succulents do need a little tender loving care (proper watering helps ensure growth and flowering), we love succulent plants because they’re low maintenance. From broad-leaved to spiky to rosette shaped, there’s an endless array of succulent forms available. From well-known species, like gangly Aloe Vera, to more obscure succulent types, like the compact Sedum Spathulifolium, succulent plants can add easy attitude to your indoor container garden. Mix and match different types for an eclectic arrangement of various succulent types, or pick your favorite one and showcase it in a pretty succulent container.
For a small, winter-hardy succulent with light yellow flowers in summer try Sedum Spathulifolium.
