Summer Succulents

These versatile plants are low-maintenance and lovely.

Succulent plants are great for both experienced gardeners and for those just beginning to test out their green thumbs. Versatile in looks and form, they are mostly characterized by a plump or swollen appearance, because of their water storage capabilities. These hardy plants can survive both the crazy hot summers and our colder winters.  

They are fantastic for ornamental purposes, but some succulents, like aloe, are helpful to us, too – you can break off a piece of the leaf and use the juice to soothe a sunburn, for example.

At the very least, they are fairly inexpensive, easily available and make a lovely addition to any outdoor or indoor space whether you want a pop of greenery or a complete saturation.
