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:

    I live in zone 8 north central tx. It goes from heavy rain to drought to freezing here. Will these plants work in our area? If so where can i purchase some?

    I live in zone 6b in the northeast Texas panhandle. Will this plant work for me here and where do I get some of it?

    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.
