I have been wanting to get some of these beautiful plants for a LONG time and today I finally did. A large home improvement chain store here has a display with many different types, and describes how to arrange a succulent garden.

There are three types: focal (the tallest, biggest plant), structural (supporting plants that are a medium size) and textural (the little plants that fill in the rest of the space).

Here’s a picture of all my choices:

And here’s how it looks arranged into the little pot, along with some rocks (including some special ones I’ve collected over the years).

I have extra plants that didn’t fit, so I will be making another pot to complement this one. Maybe next year I’ll do an in-ground succulent garden if these do really well!
