In botany, succulent plants, also known as succulents, are plants with parts that are thickened, fleshy, and engorged, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. The word succulent comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning ‘juice’, or ‘sap’. Succulent plants may store water in various structures, such as leaves and stems. The water content of some succulent organs can get up to 90–95%. Succulents are often grown as ornamental plants because of their striking and unusual appearance, as well as their ability to thrive with relatively minimal care.
2 years ago, BHG© did a spread on 26 of the most popular succulents. Knowing how well-loved some are, I decided to copy and paste what I could of the article. I have to post it in 2 parts given its size. I hope you can add some of these plants to your garden.
