S & J Tree Farm and Nursery's
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.
