Sedum

Sedum are a nice addition to any full to part sun landscape. Low maintenance, heat and drought tolerant. Sedum would work great in an area that the soil is constantly dry and does not receive the care that most beds require. Most stay on the small side and have a growing habit lower to the ground. Plant away from area with high foot traffic as sedums can't handle being walked over. Plant as a border or in a bed with other succulents for a unique look.

Portulacaria afra 'Red Stem'

Attractive dark red stems on a miniature jade plant. This plant will work well in rock gardens, dry areas and in containers with other succulents. Thrives in full sun and low water areas. Will reach up to 2' tall but, can be kept smaller by pinching back. Hardy in Zones 9-11.

Pineapple Express Mangave

Pineapple Express is a cross between a manfreda and agave. This hybrid has dark spiky leaves with burgundy spots. The more sun this plant receives the burgundy spots will become more showy. With leaves 1" wide and tightly packed, it gives it a look of the top of a pineapple. Growing only 9-10" tall with a 16-18" spread, this plant will work on any patio or in a garden. This Managave can freeze, so it does best in a pot.

Dyckia 'Nickel Silver'

This relative of the pineapple family has long succulent leaves with silver and white spines. Flowers in the spring on long spikes with orange blooms. This member of the bromeliad family is the most drought tolerant. When deprived of water, it will go dormant but recovers quickly once it is watered. Grows well in zones 8-11 in average to well drained soil. 12"-24" x 12"-24" in size.

Turquoise Tail Sedum

Turquoise Tail Sedum requires full sun but, can tolerate a small amount of shade. This tough sedum with its blue green coloring is hardy zones 5-10. Deer and rabbit resistant along with being drought tolerant. This plant grows 4-6" tall with a 12" spread, has small yellow blooms from May thru June.
