Succulents Garden

Succulents are easy to plant, require minimum care, are inexpensive and simple to propagate and have few pests.

They provide year round interest with their sculptural shapes and beautiful colors, especially in winter. The Succulent Garden offers solutions for Calaveras County gardeners who face a myriad of challenges: numerous rocks, poor or clay soil, a wide range of temperatures (from 10 to 115 degrees), varying rainfall levels, temperatures that drop dramatically overnight and heat waves in February or March.  The garden showcases succulent species and cultivars hardy enough to endure these extreme conditions and thrive with minimal water. The height of the yuccas augments the landscaping aesthetic.
