These colorful, low-growing succulents form clusters of rosettes with pointed leaves. There are even a few varieties that can survive in Zone 4. Sempervivum makes a great addition to a rock garden or container planting.
Most varieties of succulents need at least half a day to a full day of sunlight.
Remove plants from their pots and plant making sure the soil level remains the same depth on the plant.
Succulents need good draining soil. For container planting you can purchase cactus soil or incorporate sand, gravel or volcanic rock for better drainage. The container you are planting in should have a drainage hole.
After planting, water in well and allow the soil to dry between waterings. Water when soil is dry and the sun is shining. Succulents don’t like to have wet feet.
Most succulents need very little fertilizer. Watering with a well balanced fertilizer once a month will be all they need.
