You can’t open a wedding mag or click on a bridal blog, without seeing quirky, cute, fresh and modern succulents. They come in all shapes and sizes – to the point of being mind boggling: There are even Flickr groups, forums, and websites devoted to succulent identification.
Whatever the type or species, they are here to stay – adding texture and style to bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces. They need to be worked with differently than flowers- wired for bouquets and many centerpieces, and some are fragile and shed ‘fingers’ if you’re not careful.
On the other hand, they’re super hardy and you can plant them when you bring your bouquet home! They are naturals in our Mediterranean-esque climate and are so drought-tolerant, even little ol’ me can grow them.
