Succulent Plants

for Northeast Florida Gardens

Succulent plants have thick fleshy stems, leaves and or roots that are designed for water storage. Extremely drought tolerant, succulents take advantage of those thick flesh water storage parts during the hot dry months and can last for extended periods of time without rain and supplimental irrigation.

 As gardeners lives get busier, the interest in plants that maintain themselves with little help from the gardener continues to grow. Succulent plants can be an easy care option that come in a surprising array of colors shapes and sizes.

Here are a few tried and true succulent selections  for Northeast Florida that will tolerate our dry sandy soils in non irrigated spaces, thrive in raised beds and container gardens, and may even find a happy home indoors near a sunny window.
