Their compact form makes succulents a winner when contrasted with statement plants, such as this staghorn fern. Seek out containers of different shapes and sizes and pair with plants in proportion to retain visual harmony. Here, echeveria is balanced with tall sansevieria and crassula in disparate clay pots, and a mix of vintage items.
“If you’re not a fan of traditional succulents, consider types that take on a shrub-like form and provide colour. Crassula undulata and Kalanchoe ‘Silver Spoons’ are examples” ~ Matt Leacy, Landart Landscapes
