These exquisite plants are drought resistant. Because they are able to absorb and retain large amounts of water, the leaves, stems and roots often get a very fleshy appearance. The water retainage allows these plants to survive very hot and arid conditions.
Below are a few of the many interesting varieties of Succulent Plants:
Burro’s Tail – This cool plant grows to about four inches long and yes resembles a donkey’s tail. They are not hard to care for and do best in a container that drains well.
Crown of Thorns – These enjoy being close to a window to receive about three to four hours of sunlight per day. When its soil is completely dry it is time to water. One myth about the Crown of Thorns comes from Thailand where it is thought that the more flowers that bloom the better future the plant owner will have.
Flaming Katy – How about a plant from Madagascar? The Flaming Katy does best when temperatures are between 60 to 80 degrees and they enjoy well draining clay pots. They have dark red, gold and white flowers if allowed to have eight to ten hours of sunlight.
Jade Plant – Fully matured, the jade plant is similar to a bonsai plant in growth patterns but it has white or pink flowers that bloom in the shape of stars.
Aloe Vera – Most everyone has heard of Aloe Vera. There are medical ointments made from the juices of this plant. People use it for scrapes and burns as well as some cosmetics. Of course it can make an attractive house plant as well with its thick, pointed leaves that are variegated with spots of white.
Hens-and-Chicks – Although they have a relatively short life span of three years this succulent produces red flowers in the shape of a crown. It does produce offspring thus the name Hens- and-Chicks. It is said to live forever due to its reproductive ability.
Stonecrop – These come in numerous colors of green, pink and blue. Some of them grow tall while other varieties are more like creeping vines.
Whale’s Tongue Agave – Native to Mexico, these succulents are typically found in the mountains where the elevation is higher than 3700 feet. They are perfect for outdoors decor as they grow to 14 feet tall.

Pig’s Ear – Growing to heights of four feet the Pig’s Ear succulent has thick oval leaves with red edges. It requires little water but does take up a lot of garden space.
Sunburst –The sunburst succulent is native to the Canary Islands so it does best in an ocean air environment. It has three basic colors of green, white and yellow variegated leaves and grows to a height of two feet.
