Succulents” is the common name for a group of plants that have evolved particular water-retention abilities in order to better adapt for survival in dry, arid desert climates. Succulents are hardy plants that require little water and care. If you happen to live in one of these areas, landscaping with succulent plants can add aesthetic beauty to your garden. Common succulent plants for landscaping are sempervivum (hens and chicks), sedum, aeonium, and kalanchoe. Add succulent plants for landscaping in late summer or early fall when many plants begin looking tired. The lush foliage and flower colors fill in spaces in the garden to give you a beautiful garden all year long.
