Chicago Succulents


Just in time for the inauguration. From the Chicago Sun-Times, we find out that there are a few hardy colorful succulents that can help to brighten up even a midwestern winter.

Let’s face it, the… dominant tones of Midwestern winters (are) the grays and browns of barks and branches, of decomposing leaves, and of organic mulch on frozen soil….

(One) option is a group of succulents known as hens-and-chicks (Sempervivum spp.). Hardy to Zone 3, when growing in full sun and very well-drained soil, plants form slowly-spreading colonies of evergreen plants.

Homeowners today can select from a wide variety of… ground covers that will add vital shades… shapes and textures to their winter landscapes.

This is true.
