With their funky shapes, interesting textures and vibrant colours, these versatile plants are having a fashionable moment – and for good reason. Their clean lines and defined shapes look modern and look fantastic when planted in copper or galvanised steel containers or set in pebbles and gravel.
Succulents are ideal for gardeners who don’t have much time as they don’t need special care – and they’ll shrug off most pests. Their thick, fleshy leaves and stems store water, which means they rarely require watering either. Although they do flower, they’re especially prized for their foliage which comes in geometric shapes and an array of colours, from cool greens to glowing reds, warm golds and deep, rich purples in all shapes and sizes.
