Have you attempted a mini or fairy garden yet? Using succulents in your landscape is a great way to get started!
Succulents are booming in popularity for two simple reasons:
they are beautiful and nearly indestructible.
Technically, a succulent is any plant with thick, fleshy (succulent) water storage organs. Succulents store water in their leaves, their stems or their roots. These plants have adapted to survive arid conditions throughout the world, from Africa to the deserts of North America. Fortunately for us, this adaptive mechanism has resulted in an incredible variety of interesting leaf forms and plant shapes, including paddle leaves, tight rosettes, and bushy or trailing columns of teardrop leaves.

As a group, succulents include some of the most well-known plants, such as the ALOE and agave, and many almost unknown plants. CACTI are a unique subset of the succulent group. Succulents make excellent display plants in dish gardens.
The mini pots can hold a tiny succulent or a faux flower as well.
This is a new addition to our line of mini-garden accents. It's a gorgeous Pavillion accented with leaves and vines. They create a perfect space for placing a mini-bird bath. In addition to succulents you can add your favorite herbs. Pictured below, I have added English Thyme and a tiny English lavender plant.
