Succulents are now seen in everything from boutonnieres to hanging planters. They are a trend that is taking over not only gardens but also wedding and home decor. Succulents are a type of plant that thrives in dry climates. Most succulents come from areas in Africa or Central America where it is warm and low in humidity. Because they store water in their leaves, they can withstand long hours in the sun and little watering.

Succulents are known for their low maintenance and longevity, making them perfect for people who work all day, are on the go, or just aren’t good at taking care of plants. These plants are great for adding structure and life to gardens and homes. There are many types of succulents that can be used as corner plants in a home office or as pops of color in a lush garden.
