Waterwise Succulents - Cape Town

Waterwise Succulents. Their funky shapes, textures and colours add designer flair to our gardens. Succulents are popular due to a number of factors: Their eye-catching forms. They are extremely water wise plants. They are slow growing and need minimal care and watering. No need for excessive maintenance.

Most of them have clean lines, striking forms and dramatic silhouettes that fit into the modern and simple styles of homes and décor. Interest in indigenous plants and the environment means more attention on many of our unique South African aloes and succulents. Most succulents tolerate extremes of climate like baking sun, strong winds and even frosts and so are very adaptable and easy to grow.

Follow these Tips for using Water Wise Succulents in your Garden:

Accessorise:
Much like wearing jewellery, succulents are even more eye-catching if paired with accessories. They work well with different colour pebbles, gravels and stones. They work easily with modern materials like glass, stainless steel and weathered copper. They add emphasis to ethnic style gardens and pots, and highlight modern space age design.
Contrast:
The succulent world has an amazing array of different textures and colours. Clever gardeners will combine contrasting succulents to add extra interest to their gardens. Spiky, toothed, spongy, and rounded shapes or foliage of gold, copper, silver, bronze, red, green etc can be very appealing.
Grouping:
Group or mass the same succulent for the best effect. This is a simple tool for the low maintenance gardener, who wants the greatest impact with the least amount of work.
Repetition:
Repeat the same plant in the same pot to create a striking feature. This could be small low bowls with echeveria (succulent roses) on a window ledge, or huge modern pots with aloes or euphorbia.
Simplicity:
The simple shapes and forms of many succulents lend themselves to being used as focal plants in very minimalist landscapes, window boxes and pots.
Variety:
With the infinite variety of Water Wise succulents today, they are a great way to add a modern chic look to update your home, patio or garden. It is all in the creative way in which you can use them.
