Outdoor Succulents

Succulents by and large do best outdoors.  Leaf colour intensifies particularly for those that love a full sun position and it is a real feature of some succulents. Colouring up usually occurs when succulents are stressed at extremes of the seasons, in either summer or winter and sometimes both. A lot of succulents also require sunlight to flower, good airflow, dry warm positions in shade or partial shade and protection from afternoon sun if placed in full sun. If you would like to purchase a succulent for a particular position outdoors, then return to the ‘Plant Gifts’ menu and select ‘Outdoor Succulents’ from the dropdown menu and the appropriate sub menu, “Full Sun”, “Partial Sun” or “Shade | Filtered Light” to make your selection.
