We created more space in our garden to add a bunch more rock succulent containers.

Above is a succulent container from our last batch.  It is still looking awesome.  I wish I could say the same for the grass that you can see in the background.  It rarely rains in SF during the summer months, and we are conserving H2O this season by not watering the lawn that much.

Put on finishing touches.

These rock containers are pretty cool.  We scored a bunch of them last winter, and finally getting around to planting the last of them.  Megan is tucking a couple more cuttings into the rock bowl.

Just one more sedum.

and…done.  This Graptopetalum paraguayense (center) also called Ghost Plant, changes it looks depending how much sunlight it gets.

  1. Those containers look great! The color really compliments the succulents. Those kangaroos are amazing.

  2. Stumbled over your site and Im so glad I did. I love what youre doing, it fantastic to see so many of these plants in the right environment. I love succulents but ive never seen a ghost plant, its amazing – as are the ‘ghost kangaroos’! thanks for sharing.

    • Hey, thanks Free Range Girl. Yeah, that Graptopetalum paraguayense is a funny one. All of the ones in our garden are from the same plant originally. However, the ones in the sun are darker, and the ones that get more light…are lighter in color…and everywhere in between. Matti

  3. I really love your cute little succulent rock gardens. I love those rock planters!!! Wish I could find some of those! So glad you found me so I could find you! We will have to swap succulent info. You can check me out on flickr also! http://www.flickr.com/photos/sweetstuff1957/

    Take care,
    Candy
