Succulents are the New Black


As water concerns in California continue to build, smart gardeners are embracing gardening which is not so reliant on water. Roger's Gardens, a premier gardening shop in Orange County, has been conducting seminars called Gardening Naturally on the weekend to learn how to garden with Nature.

Succulents are becoming more prevalent in landscape design. New installations showcase these hardy, drought tolerant plants.

I love these pics you posted of the succulants. What is the name of this particular type? It is a beauty. I found your blog while searching for garden blogs. You have taken some wonderful pics.

Isn't it funny...we California gardeners finally get all geared up for drought-tolerant plantings, then what do you know: an exceptionally rainy year, and our thoughts (my thoughts anyway!) get ambushed once again by the sight of Japanese Maples and hydrangeas...

My heart melts at the sight of an English garden (rain, rain, rain). But I love those thirsty plants.
