Best For: Hardy succulents are good for practically any arrangement.  Their long vase life allows and little amount of water that is required make them extremely versatile.  They can be used to fit just about any style and even make really neat looking boutonnieres!

Fun Fact: Did you know that Cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti??

Want to grow your own Succulents?

If you want to grow something of your own, succulents might be an easy way to start.  Once they are established, they tend to require little maintenance. Another great thing about succulents is that they are easy to propagate.  For a lot of plants you just need a cutting and from that cutting you can grow another plant.  This post from Sunshine and Succulents has a great step-by-step tutorial for propagating your own.
