Create a tapestry in a pot with sensational succulents! The plants have a way of capturing the imagination with beautiful flowers, and interesting foliage and textures, making them irresistible additions to the sunny, well-drained garden. Because of their small size, they are also ideal candidates for the urban garden, giving city gardeners the option of growing a wide range of plants in even the most confined of spaces. Perfect for containers where forgetting to water is not a problem. They thrive on neglect, so if mom or sending a special gift for someone that loves plants but tends to forget they need love too, this is a wonderful idea!
Rock gardens are not hard to maintain, which is great for gardeners. In fact, most care simply involves removing weeds on a regular basis. Even this task will diminish as the rock plants establish themselves and fill in any gaps where weeds might grow.
Folklore: Sempervivum and Sedum are considered ‘Old World Treasures’ and are associated with mythology. During early centuries in Scandinavian countries, they were called Thor’s Helper’ and were believed to drive off demons and guard homes if planted on roofs. The Romans called them "Beard of Jupiter" and planted them on roofs to guard against lightning.
