5 Favorites: Pinkalicious Succulents – Gardenista

Ask anybody in my household and they will validate that I like the color pink. Pink scarves, pink phone, pink hoodies are simply a few of the important things I own in the rosy shade. So naturally when I found succulents in the exact same shade, I purchased them up.

Not every garden, obviously, can include succulents due to sun/shade elements and USDA zone concerns, nor can every landscape style accept and accommodate a pop of pink. However normally there is space for a minimum of one pinkalicious plant in your life. For example, you might think about a little succulent-filled container that you bring inside your home throughout the cooler months. Or perhaps you cold grow a cutie inside your home and position it by an extremely warm window. And if the color pink is currently in your garden and your environment can accept succulents, you might plant them in your garden beds.

Please keep checking out to learn more about my favorites for a pop of pink:
