Succulent plants have become increasingly popular over the years, and it’s easy to understand why. These plants pack a ton of personality into a small, easy-to-manage plant that can elevate the look of any room or garden they are planted in. In addition, these plants are great for the not-so-green thumbs of the world or anyone who struggles to handle the needs of a more delicate plant. If you’re considering diving into the wonderful world of succulent plants, you’ll love how much they liven up your home and garden.
Ease of Care
Succulent plants have skyrocketed in popularity due to their ease of care. These beautiful plants are often drought tolerant, and some are even cold tolerant, withstanding temperatures well below 0°F. Even new gardeners can quickly get the hang of growing beautiful succulent plants, whether they choose to do so indoors or outdoors. If you’re someone who is busy or forgetful, managing succulent plants will be much more successful than managing more temperamental greenery.
Lots of Variety
You might be thinking—aren’t succulents just cacti? Of course not! Succulents come in tons of different varieties, from elegant creepers to stunning flower-shaped plants. If you’re going to keep the plants indoors you can choose any succulents you like and you’ll be amazed at how quickly and easily they propagate and grow. A cute little succulent can have a big presence in the right space. You can go with a popular Echeveria for a soft, elegant look, or a Lithops for a really unique and fun plant that gets people talking.
Zone 7 Options
If you’re planting outdoors in zone 7, you’ll want to stick to breeds of succulent plants that thrive in the zone 7 climate. Thankfully, there are plenty of options to choose from to liven up your garden and add a little fun to your property. The elegant and highly popular Sempervivum can be grown, as well as the beautiful leafy agave plant. Many Sedum succulents can be grown in zone 7, along with Jovibarba and the stunning Orostachys. Most species of succulents have many different options to choose from—such as Sedum Fuzzy Wuzzy and Sedum Lime Twister. They are very different plants, but they are both great options for a zone 7 garden.
