Succulent Gardens Containers

April 5, 2010

Succulent Gardens in Castroville CA had some really cool container ideas. Their wall panels are even available online.

Rusty Rim

Succulent Gardens has a bunch of found object full of succulents.  This old rusty car rim has a nice variety of Sedum, and Sempervivum (Hen and Chicks).

Wall of Succulents

The weather was moody when we visited.  Even in overcast sun, this well established succulent wall popped.  To give you some scale (not the pest LOL), it was constructed with 12 panels each about 2 x 2 feet…or the total size was about 4 feet tall, 12 feet long.

Living pictures

They had many of their Redwood Living Picture frames on display.  Above you can see the two standard sizes they carry, and they are constructed out of reclaimed old Redwood lumber.

Mi casa es su casa

A funky little terracotta bowl with Sedum, Sempervivum, and Echeveria.


There were some of the succulent wreaths in a holding area.  The great thing with live succulent arrangements is that they keep growing and ever changing.  If they get too shaggy for your aesthetics, you can always pull out those long stemmed ones, trim down the stem…then stick it right back into the wreath.

    Your photos are terrific. And this makes me long for the days when I lived in CA and could have all those different kinds of succulents. Only I didn’t know about them then, worse luck. What a fun field trip you had. . . Good luck in the contest.
