Blooming Succulents and Cacti

8,835 Views
I love winter, but I have to admit, I'm more than ready to get back out in the garden. Succulents are a favourite of mine, but living in the cold north means most of them have to over winter indoors. I shared some pictures of them blooming last summer and some that bloomed when they were brought inside. You can see more at my blog, Dewdrop Gardens.

    I love the idea of Succulents and Cacti since we lost our only shade tree this past fall so I now have a full-sun yard. Now I will have to re-plan the entire yard. I think the only thing that will need to be moved is the spider-wort. i do want to add some succulents & cacti. I live in Michigan.

    I know what you mean, Miriam. I still have to check my lists when dealing with Latin names. There are lots of succulents and a few cacti that will grow in your area, Nancy Kruse. And the ones you really love but won't, just bring in for the winter.

    If you can get succulents to bloom indoors, Debbie, you are definitely doing something right. I love the contrast of the delicate bloom and the very spiky Mammillaria.
