Description

Succulents

Succulents are a group of plants that store water in their leaves. The leaves tend to be thick and fleshy, but some genus and species have thicker leaves than others. Succulents tend to thrive in dry climates and don’t like a lot of humidity. While they do need water to survive, they can endure extended periods of drought, relying on the stored water and nutrients in their leaves. If their roots are sitting in water for too long they will start to rot and die. Most succulents prefer warm temperatures and are not able to withstand freezing, however, some species of sedum and sempervivums are able to withstand temperatures below freezing.  Succulents tend to “blush” or turn a different color when given a shock, such as more sunlight than they are used to. When fully blushing they range in color from pinks, oranges, and purples to almost black and red.  Succulents create striking accents as ground cover in your gardens, containers,  miniature gardens, wedding flowers, terrariums or just your windowsill.
