Succulents are becoming an increasingly important design element in many gardens. Whether planted as specimens in the garden or featured in containers, they have much to offer any gardener. The great variety and forms of succulents make them extremely attractive and useful for the gardener with a dry area to cope with.
Most succulents thrive in dry sunny areas and tolerate a greater degree of neglect than any other plants. They do show their appreciation of a little tender loving care by growing stronger and with better texture, form, and color, although overwatering and overfeeding should be avoided.
