An Eye-Catching Succulent Garden

Plant Combinations, Spring Borders, Summer Borders, Fall Borders, Winter Borders


This eye-catching garden weaves together succulents and other drought-tolerant plants for a long-lasting impact. Color and texture highlight this landscape creation, where bold plants like Agave americana (Century Plant), Dracaena draco (Dragon Tree) or the gigantic Kangaroo Paws (Anigozanthos flavidus) draw attention with their sculptural forms.

They are underplanted with rivers of cool blue Senecio mandraliscae (blue chalk fingers) and blue-gray Festuca glauca (Blue Fescue), whose color repeats those of the Agave. Fluid drifts of strinkingly colored Euphorbia milii (Crown of Thorns) flow around the planting, adding a great color punch.
