Indulge in low-maintenance beauty by creating a succulent garden design. These aquatic plants are characterized by a wide range of leaf colors and shapes. Succulents have become very popular and using such plants in your garden will give it an edge.
What Are Succulents Like
Succulents have modified leaves designed to conserve water. These leaf adaptations result in striking plant textures. Water-retaining leaves range from leafless cactus spines to thick and fleshy water-retaining paddles to chubby beads or fingers.
Many succulents form a rosette of leaves, which makes an unusual textural addition to a garden. Succulents come in a variety of sizes, from tiny plants that look best in containers, to eye-catching, large-scale beauties, and in a variety of colors from pale green to purple.
