Quite colorful, this succulent garden is low maintenance and requires little water to thrive. The plants are drought tolerant and are laid out in a tapestry of striking colors, shapes and textures. We can admire with delight the beautifully variegated foliage and long-lasting flowers of Euphorbia characias 'Tasmanian Tiger' (Spurge), which compete for attention with the bright coppery-red rosettes of Sedum nussbaumerianum or the incandescent foliage of Crassula capitella 'Campfire'.

Equally attractive are the rosettes of rounded leaves of Kalanchoe luciae (Paddle Plant), the fascinating foliage of Aloe polyphylla (Spiral Aloe) that is arranged in a perfect spiral pattern, or the white spotted, sword-shaped leaves of Aloe maculata (Soap Aloe). Not to mention the small but arresting, chalky white columns of Euphorbia polygona 'Snowflake' and the fleshy blue gray pads of Opuntia santarita (Santa Rita Prickly Pear) adorned with rich purple shades.

Looking good all year-round, most of these plants change color over the seasons for a renewed appeal.
