Succulent plants have long been admired near their native habitats, but now the floral industry as a whole are using this extraordinary plant in all types of ways. And the reason for their rising popularity isn’t surprising; they’re easy to maintain, look amazing in an arrangement or a standalone piece, and come in over 20,000 varieties of shapes, colors, and sizes. A couple of months ago, we talked about how to incorporate succulents into your wedding, and now we want to give our readers an overview on why succulents are the newest trend and how you can include them in your indoor and outdoor decor.
The most loved characteristics of succulents is their hardy composition, versatility, and naturally grown beauty. Succulents also require less hydration than your typical house plant or floral arrangement. And that means that you’re plant will have a better chance of living a long and beautiful life. Because of their longevity and relatively small intake of water, succulents have become a favorite among designers and environmentalists (especially on the drought ridden west coast) who want to get the most from their arrangements.
These fascinating and adaptable creations can be placed anywhere and make a wonderful addition. And with so many succulents to chose from, it’s easy to create a colorful and diverse mosaic of succulents in a garden. It’s common to line the garden with rocks to mimic it’s natural landscape. Or create a modern succulent arrangement for your home with the addition of fast draining soil and a vase of your choosing. Whether it’s metal, ceramic, stone, or glass, the subtle tone of a succulent will look amazing in any kind of vase. One of the best things about succulents is that they can be replanted and used again for another arrangement. For example, a succulent can be taken out a bridal bouquet and planted in a container or garden as a token of your special day.
