Succulents and Cacti

The popularity of succulents has increased dramatically in the last several years. Succulent guru and author Debra Lee Baldwin pins the succulent explosion on the fact they are: 
  • a good lawn alternative for areas with water shortages
  • fire-resistant and fire-retardant; are easy to grow
  • require little maintenance
  • range in size from ground covers to trees
  • have geometric shapes
  • intriguing year-round
  • add interest to gardens of all sizes
  • come in every color including blue
  • produce longlasting, vivid flowers

Succulents: Drought-Tolerant and Easy to Maintain

Img 5239

Succulent plants thrive in sunny areas and require very little maintenance. They create striking accents and can be planted as ground cover, in containers, in landscapes, gardens and mini gardens, and in terrariums and glass globes. Succulents are also popular when incorporated into centerpieces, grapevine and driftwood art, and wedding or party favors. Truly you can get creative with these gems.

Right: Aloe "Erik the Red" is a large tall-growing aloe that can grow to 6 feet or more with its stem topped by a rosette about 2-feet wide. Dark to mid-green leaves have prominent whitish-green teeth along the leaf margin. Due to our close relationships with top growers, we were able to secure a few of this hard-to-find plant.

Did you know that Aloes attract hummingbirds? Hummingbirds love Aloes, whether large or small.
