In season: succulents

12 images

Succulents (as the family that includes aeoniums, crassulas, sempervivums and echeverias is called) are enjoying a wave of renewed interest. They are natives of the Canary Islands, South Africa, Madagascar and Asia. Their bold architectural shapes, textural foliage, exciting colours, drought-tolerant nature and love of free-draining soil are turning them from the ugly ducklings of the gardening and floristry worlds into must-haves for anyone bent on creating a living spectacle that is both dramatic and ecologically conscious.
