Not just for containers, believe it or not, many succulents can grow here as perennials.
It is the hottest trend in landscape design with many fun options, even in the Midwest.
From prickly pear cactus to succulents like Hardy Ice plant (delosperma), Hens and Chicks (Sempervivum) and Sedums.
Sedum comes in all colors and sizes. Some are upright and tall others creep along the ground.
These guys are as low maintenance as it gets, you seldom need to water them after they become established.
