The new "IT" flower-plant




I have been lingering over these beautiful plant-like flowers or flower-like plants..whichever you think is appropriate for these beauties--although a variety of sources say they are plants, so if we want to be precise, we shall call them flower-like plants. Succulents are also grouped within the cacti family and you can really tell by their appearance that they are grown near desserts. They're so gorgeous they almost look fake! Succulents have several muted tones but others can be so vibrant it will impel you to display them all over your house and even throughout a landscape. Purple and teal succulents are grown, as well! I'm a fan of them all and would just love that succulent wreath hanging out on my porch one day!




I absolutely ADORE succulents mixed with peach roses, that bee hive-like plant and a variety of other flowers to form a wedding bouquet! I love the mixing of the yellow Craspedia's (or Billy Balls, as some say), as well. Brings in a different approach to the traditional bouquet.







As you can tell, I'm not a flower/plant expert, so forgive me for any mistaken names or wordings! Either way, I'm ready to start planting my own and seeing what flower-like plants will pop up!!

What's your take on succulents? Add to a bouquet, keep in the garden or they're just so gorgeous you'd put them any and everywhere?!
