Are Succulents are the next big thing?
First, I have to apologize for not having any pictures to post. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that my posts typically have a couple of pictures in them. I brought a camera with two sets of batteries to the show and they were both bad and I never got around to finding a place to buy more.
I was amazed at the amount of wholesale nurseries/growers who had succulents on display at a recent trade show I attended. I’m starting to think they are the flavor of the year, possibly because of the popularity of green roofs and living walls. A lot of the nurseries were displaying these assorted succulent trays. I really didn’t have any interest in using them in the gardens we design and install but I could definitely see making some container gardens with the vibrant color succulents possess. I was definitely drawn tho their textures and colors not typically seen in this part of the country. I especially kept thinking how cool it would be to make one a display for a centerpiece on our kitchen table.
