Update on Succulent Names
June 13, 2007
I made my first succulent garden a couple of weeks ago and I had been wondering about the names of each plant. There are a few really good forums for gardeners and the two threads I posted in were You Grow Girl’s Carnivores, Succulents and Exotics forum and Garden Web’s Cacti and Succulents forum.
Here’s the picture of my succulent garden:
Reviewing all the responses, here are the possiblities:
- Senecio crassissimus ‘Humbert’
- Echeveria ‘Perle Von Nurnberg’ (2 votes)
- Echeveria ‘Moonglow’
- Haworthia fasciata (5 votes)
- Haworthia attenuate
- Haworthia zebra (3 votes)
- a jade species
It’s nice to know the general consensus for the names of my succulents. When I bought the plants at Rona and Pioneer Nursery, the tags only said “Succulent” and nothing else. I also learned that the Spider Hens and Chicks (Sempervivium arachnoideum) in the front centre of the pot probably won’t like having the rocks underneath and would prefer bare soil in order to spread.
Gardeners are so helpful!
