Many people fall in love with succulents as soon as they see them. At CSW we certainly have the succulent bug.

In this post you can find 6 stylish and appealing succulents that could look amazing in your home or garden.

We are going to include a mix of succulents that you will be able to get hold of fairly easily, and some that are more unusual.

Peperomia Prostrata

This beautiful succulent likes more water than most, and also does well in a smaller pot – don’t repot it into too big of a pot, go up only one size at a time.

Peperomia Prostrata likes to dangle over the side of the pot and reach towards the light – it is a lovely plant to have near a window in your house.

For many people this is their first succulent, it is not uncommon, but it is very beautiful. The leaves develop a white coating that gives them an incredible look, and they bloom with attractive flowers.

Sedum Morganianum – Donkey’s Tail / Burro’s Tail

Once you see a well grown Sedum morganianum you will never forget it.

The plant’s stems feature dense clusters of jelly-bean type green leaves that love to fall over the edge of the pot.

Senecio Serpens – ‘Blue chalk sticks’

One of the most unique and incredibly coloured succulents – Blue chalk sticks have a reputation for looking great in the right location.

Blue chalk sticks are known to get a little out of hand over time, so you will need to keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t take over your flowerbed!

Sedum Carl is a member of the Crassula family (though you wouldn’t guess by looking at it).

The plant blooms with fantastic magenta flowers and looks amazing in your garden flowerbed.

We found this plant (in the picture/GIF above) for sale at the Gordon Riggs garden centre in Walsden, Todmorden, North Yorkshire.

Crassula Ovata – Jade Plant

Another popular succulent that no collection is complete without is Crassula ovata, also known as the Jade plant, friendship tree, lucky plant, money plant or money tree.

As well as being so beautiful, the jade plant can be easily propagated from stem or leaf cuttings, making it irresistible and really easy to share with your friends and family.

Crassula ovata likes to be kept in dry soil so do not over-water, and give the plant plenty of light.

We hope you enjoyed this post! We would love to hear you favourite succulent – comment below!
