5 Reasons I Choose Succulents



1. What other plants pair both seafoam green and pink in one tidy, charming package?




2. $200 spent on the water bill vs $200 spent at my favorite local boutique...need I say more?



3. I'm a pushover for rosettes of all sizes.



4. I like to make my neighbors look twice.



5. Impatiens only look good in tropical gardens and (hard truth) tropical gardens rarely look great outside of the tropics. [Note: Prevalence of palms aside, California is really not a tropical region.]
