A highly specialised group of plants with thickened and enlarged roots, stems or leaves, succulents are adaptations which evolved to help the plants store water in dry climates, like arid deserts. This makes them a popular choice in drought-resistant or water-wise gardens, especially in areas with occasional water restrictions like South Africa. There are several thousand ‘succulent’ species divided into about 60 different plant families occurring in nature, with many more hybrids and cultivars available in cultivation.
In this Shop category, you’ll find the weird and the wonderful of the plant world. You’ll be able to add succulents to your collection that are not generally available from the large retail nurseries, including rare species, cultivars and mutations. We supply everything from southern African endemics like Adromischus, Crassula, and Haworthia, to exotic cacti like Monkey’s Tail (Cleistocactus colademononis) and Chin cactus (Gymnocalycium mihanovichii), as well as a variety of epiphytes, like string of hearts (Ceropegia woodii) and string of turtles (Peperomia prostrata).
