Those are gorgeous Lynn. I've just started planting succulents in my containers, but they did so well last summer in the heat and drought in texas, I'll be doing lots more this year in other pots.

teacup, succulents have been my favorite plants for a long time. There is such a huge variety to choose from no matter where you live. I tend to stick with the really hardy ones. : ) What kind are you growing? Lewisia really does well here in the Willamette Valley.

Kathy that is a very interesting flower, what is it? Probably not hardy here?

I am such a beginner, I just picked some up at a big box store and stuck them in a pot. This year I hope to save the name tags so i can research what i have.

Those are really cute Cinda. You can really create an entire scene with succulents. I love the plant in the foreground of the first photo. I wonder what it is?

The plant is called white stonecrop also known as baby tears sedum.
A very nice plant , it keeps that blue color year round.

I was at a plant sale yesterday at Tropiflora in Sarasota - they specialize in Bromeliads and succulents. I bought a few nice broms and here's my first container of the season! YAY!

I think the Bromeliads are beautiful when they bloom, but I just love the foliage of some of the varieties. This pot is huge (about 34" wide) and I was surprised how well these ones filled it! I had plans for more but there was no room!

I think this one can go in this category - I planted it tonight after work and am pretty pleased with the results! I used the Sansevieria I bought yesterday along with some Ornamental Kale I've had hanging around for a couple of months now. Tucked in a little Lobelia and used the Golden sedum as a trailer.

I actually planted the Sansevieria in it's pot as I think they tend to take over everything. I just want to keep it contained and the container I used was deep enough.

I'm a Lobelia Killer and I just love that plant. Maybe it will do better in this location as it's a little more protected and limited in sun hours!

Well, as I looked from the top scrolling down to bottom, with each level I kept saying ooh, ooooh, then oh my goodness. It just gets more magnificant the further down the picture I got. Then I saw the container. That really knocked my socks off. That sedum was put to very good use. Thumbs up The colors, shapes and textures are so eye catching. You sure have a talent for doing this.

Thanks Lynn...I really liked this one too! It's different! I have about 10 of those containers. They are so beautiful but too big for most areas. I bought them from my head supplier and they were called "Water Hyacinth" containers. They're galvanized tin, coated with some kind of strange leathery strips and they are totally sealed for leaks. I drill holes in the bottom of them to use them for containers but I think they were designed for watergardens. The outside seem to stand up to the water and weather as I've had some outside for ages. They're really nice.

Thank you for the close up Kathy. It looks like it would be interesting to touch. I am fascinated by the texture and color. Very nice.
