En Masse

There are three ways I like my succulents; all alone as an accent, mixed in with other plants, and grouped together. That says a lot about the versatility of this family of plants.

In my front garden along the street I am developing a drought resistant, low maintenance garden and since it is a fairly large space it is perfect for planting succulents in groupings.

The repeating designs make a pronounced statement throughout this garden bed and I am fortunate that I have the space to experiment with this type of interesting structure. There are still some spots that need attention and I look forward to finding other succulents to plant "en masse" in this garden this fall.

Beautiful! And you are also lucky to live in a climate that allows you to plant these fabulous succulents in the ground "en masse!"

Fabulous! Here in Zone 4, I have some sedum that survive outside, but need to keep the aloe and other succulents in the sunroom.
