Succulents have become extremely popular with gardeners for lots of reasons. They have a wonderful unique appearance and they are very hardy. This means they are very easy to look after.
They can survive the most arid conditions and need very little water in the process. Succulent plants store water in their leaves and stems, usually in the more fleshy part of the plant.
They require very little water and are perfect ornamental plants. You can use them for many projects like Succulent Wreaths.
