Concrete planters are a great way to showcase succulents. Inside or out, concrete planters are both rustic and modern. The textures and sizes of these pots makes matches so well with the geometric shapes of the succulents.
The echeveria and the sedum work well together. Sedums make for great pairings becuase they are generally a very hardy plant. They can take more water than most succulents, but also do well in dry conditions. The sedum is a ground cover and I like how it incorporates the fine texture with the mature echeveria. Also, the contrasting colors makes the purple pop!
I actually have no idea what this plant is. It mysteriously showed up one day as a cutting on my desk at the Geek Gardens Greenhouse. No note or nothing! So of course, I had to plant it. I really love the shape and those spikes!! How can something so pretty look so dangerous! Another closeup just for good measure.
