Question: which succulents?
Hi, I would like to plant in the planters, some succulent plants that last me all year long ... which plants do you recommend? Keep in mind that in the morning I have direct sun, but around noon I am already in the shade until the next day! Thank you very much for helping!!
Which succulents in the planters ?: Answer: which succulents?
many succulents are native to areas of the globe where the winters are characterized by decidedly cold temperatures; some of the most widespread succulent plants, such as the echinopsis, the echinocactus, some cereus, the aeonium, are used in nature to winter temperatures that can fall below -10 ° C (not all species of the cited species, but many of them). The problem with many cactaceae and succulents generally lies in the fact that in the areas from which the winter comes it is also very dry and dry, so to survive the frost these plants need to be placed in a place where they do not receive water in any so; indeed, those who cultivate their succulents in the garden generally stop watering them already in September-October, and place them in a shelter or covered with a transparent plastic sheet.
The general rule is: the colder it is, the less you water; and viceversa.
The plants resistant to cold, grown outdoors during the winter months, appear even healthier, more floriferous and with less pests, compared to specimens of the same species cultivated in cold greenhouses or at home.
Clear that much depends on minimum temperatures: some years, even in the Po valley, the minimum winter temperatures fall only sporadically below -5 ° C; in the winter of 2011-2012 the minimum winter temperatures for weeks were below -10 ° C. A plant adapted to live in cold conditions, it can die in case of intense cold, but this happens also for non succulent plants.
If instead of cacti you simply want to cultivate outdoor succulent plants, there are some that even develop with alpine frost, such as various species of sempervivum and sedum, many species of echeverias tolerate the cold well, and occasionally even frost .
Some aizoaceae endure the cold very well, and the excessively intense frost causes only the burning of the tips of the branches, therefore they are cultivated quietly in the garden, in the vases, or even in the flowerbeds; they are also seen in street furniture; among these the most widespread are delosperma, aptenia and carpobrotus, and all mesembriantemi; in summer these plants are filled with small flowers similar to daisies, red, pink or yellow. Even in this case, however, much depends on the minimum winter temperatures, if they are below -10 ° C it is unlikely that your plants will survive, and therefore you will have to cover them with woven fabric.
