Companion plants for succulents

Many Hometalk members have recently posted about succulents, and Debra Lee Baldwin has a useful post on companion plants for them on her blog, Gardening Gone Wild. She's also giving a talk on the topic at next week's "Succulent Extravaganza" at the Succulent Gardens near San Francisco. Have you incorporated these water-thrifty plants into your gardens? What do you plant with them? See her full post here:

    It has been so dry in Louisiana, my succulents are looking terrible. We are praying for rain!! Since they do like dry weather (but not this dry), how often should I water??

      @Donna Dyson There are some real succulent pros on Hometalk who will have a better chance of seeing your question if you post it as a new question using the red "post & ask" button at the top of the page.

    Douglas Hunt, what is the best way to move a Cardboard Palm that has gotten too large?

      @Krisfrylee You're probably going to need helping hands, but there are pretty good directions here:

    I think it's quite hard to arrange for removals of different types of plants in the garden once you've decided on a "theme". For me, I'd probably stick with succulents all the way instead of trying to mix things up thnen just leave things like that.
