AG Sanremo Imperia Savona Costa Azzurra: Miss Succulent is one of our company’s Registered Trade Marks. It points to the quality of our Succulent Plants and distinguishes them as our exclusive product.

Succulents are defined as all plants able to resist drought thanks to water stored in their reserves (stems – leaves); these render the plant immune from lack of external water sources even for long periods.

Plants in this category often come from families that genetically are very distant from each other. Having adapted themselves so well to their environment has often changed their appearance such that they look similar despite, in fact, being extremely different from each other (evolutionary convergence).

Succulents according to geographical provenance:

  • Mountain succulents: the following come from Mexico – Echeverias (with their abundant multi-coloured flowers), Graptopetalums, Pachyphytums and Sedums, all species with blue-tinted leaves – from purple to brick red, and in rosette formation like flowers. All the Agaves and Yuccas come from the Mexico Highlands. In Europe we find Kalanchoe, other varieties of Sedum and Sempervivum (common houseleek) of the Dolomites here in Italy that live among the rocks and in winter are covered with snow. The ability to withstand the stormy winter temperatures of our country is also shared by this large group: it is not unusual to see the generous cascades of Graptpetalum paraguayense hanging from house balconies throughout the colder regions.

  • Desert succulents: these are families that come mainly from South Africa and include individuals often very different from each other such as Aloe and Pachipodium or the innumerable species of Euphorbia that range from small globular Euphorbia obesa to large specimens of Euphorbia candelabrum, the real trees of the savannah. Crassula and Stapelia form dense, multi-coloured bushes while the Lithops dazzle with their rock-like shapes and spectacular blooms (have you never seen a stone in flower?). For this whole group minimum temperatures are considerably higher than those survived by the mountain succulents and they rarely live if temperatures go below zero.

Technical notes:

During the summer time you only need to give Succulents one good watering every 2 weeks; remember that short periods without water help succulents to remain healthy and compact.

For the same reason, it is a good idea to plant them in porous, well-draining soil: in the absence of specialist soil, a good soil for flowering plants will do, mixed with 1/3 course pumice.
