A Succulent Verge
Easy-care and water-wise species are the best choice for a petrol station parking lot.
A Neat, Succulent Rockery
Edging an entrance road, a mix of common succulents creates a far-from common display. Aloe vanbalenii, Aloe arborescens, Aloe thraskii, Crassula multicava, Kleinia fulgens.
Even in the harshest drought, these succulents provide a spectacular show. Aloe vanbalenii, deep maroon Kalanchoe sexangularis, jade blue Curio aizoides, Crassual sarmentosa, and Kalanchoe thyrsiflora.
Add hot spice to a wintery succulent bed with maroon Kalanchoe sexangularis and sea-green Curio aizoides.
Summer/ Autumn Succulents
Creamy-pink Crassula ovata flowers top their bright green leaves in soft contrast to the pink-greys of Aloe chabaudii. Maroon and blue-green leaves lift this display.
Crassula and Aloes
A stunning arrangement of Aloe chabaudiis surrounded by a froth of russet, green and soft pink Crassula sarmentosa.
Designing with leaves
Remove the flowers, and leaf colour and form make this arrangement just as attractive.
Kalanchoe and Cotyledon
Drooping peach umbels of Cotyledon orbiculata bring out the rich russets edging the Kalanchoe thyrsiflora leaves. Euphorbia grandicornis - very spiny leaves - is in the background.
Lampranthus Fanta Orange
The luminous pools of Fanta Orange Lampranthus combine with apple-green Cotyledon species. Want to know more? Read our article, Fabulous Fusion.
Orange Lampranthus flowers enhance the red blush on Kalanchoe thyrsiflora, and the pencil line maroon on the Cotyledon leaves.
Succulents for Narrow Beds
Neat, compact forms prevent this arrangement from getting out of hand.
A Townhouse Succulent Design

A dry winter brings out the reds in a sea of succulents.
Succulents at the Coast
Crassula alba curls around an Aloe vanbalenii. Rich colour is supplied by leaf colour as much as flower colour in this design.
Scarlet flowering Crassula alba is the star attraction.
Crassula capitella; White-flowering
Crassula capitella flowers creamy white in autumn and winter, providing a much needed contrast to the brighter succulent flowers.
Crassula and aloes for hot sun
Soften rigid aloe forms
Felicia amelloides softens the static form of this aloe and Cotyledon orbiculata behind it.
Coastal Gardens - Winter Aloes
A dry winter brings out shades of red, copper, and orange in succulents leaves. When they combine with equally warm flower hues of orange, red, and yellow, the resulting display is spectacular.
This succulent island provides critical habitat and safe harbour for insects and other small creatures. Succulent designs work well in these environments. Here, Crassula sarmentosa and Kleinia fulgens colour an autumn season at the coast.
