The fuss-free nature of succulents — “plants that store water” — is making them an increasingly popular choice for outdoor planters. They need watering infrequently, they resist pests, and some types don’t even need fertilizing.
On top of that, they have intricate forms and complex textures that make them more structurally interesting than many common container plants. Familiar types include agave, hens and chicks, aloe and sedum.
