Thank you for joining our Succulent of the Month Club.
Here are the succulents we have sent so far. Stay a member to collect all 60 unique plants in one year!
Mostly green with just a creamy edge? Mostly cream with a central band of green that's almost completely submerged? All green? All cream? Each leaf finds its own solution; the plant is the libertarian of succulents.
Only the all-green leaves are to be discouraged. They have so much more chlorophyll that they can outgrow the more colorful growth. The albino growth is the most precious. With no chlorophyll at all, it grows only with energy shared by its greener neighbors.
The occasional clipping-out of an all-green stem, the occasional watering—or not—and the jade plant is good for the year.
String of Banana
Quickly forms plush hanging baskets. Thrives in a bright room or with morning sun on a patio in temperate areas. Senecio radicans glauca, native to South Africa, is commonly known as the “String of Bananas”. Member of Compositae, or the Aster family. Stems have curious emerald green banana-shaped leaves with fascinating translucent “windows”. Flowers are like pom-poms of many tiny white flowers and are fragrant.
Echeveria 'Haageana', considered to be a hybrid of Echeveria harmsii, forms frosty green rosettes that cluster quickly. Bell-shaped orange flowers loved by hummingbirds. Requires excellent drainage. Bright light for best appearnce. Water thorough when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost.
Sedum treleasei is a succulent plant with pale blue-green, thick and fleshy leaves up to 1.5 inches long, somewhat flattened on top and rounded below. Older leaves often take on a yellow tinge at the tips and margins, and sometimes there is a flush of pink on the leaf tips. Plants develop stems which may reach up to 1 foot in height, and they branch to form a good-sized clump in time. Flowering commences at the end of February or in early March, and extends into April. The flower stalks are up to 6 inches long, adorned with bracts which are miniature replicas of the leaves. Each stalk ends in a cluster of bright yellow, star-like flowers up to 0.5 inch across.
Echeveria 'Azulita', (Spanish for “little blue one”), is an Echeveria minima hybrid, and as a result, forms miniature rosettes to 2? in diameter with icy blue leaves and reddish leaf tips.
