4 Fun Succulents for Cold Weather

Succulents are popular for good reason—they are available in many different varieties, colors, and textures; they don’t require a lot of care; and they’re versatile enough to fit into a wide range of garden types and projects.

And our nurseries have interesting succulents that do well even when the temperatures turn frosty. Plant them in pots or in the ground, for year-around appeal.

Come in and browse the whole collection and we'll help you create a bright spot for these frosty winter days.

Hens & Chicks

Hens & Chicks—you can't go wrong with a name like that!
Of the Sempervivum Family, these succulents are interesting to look at, and bursting with character. There are many different varieties available, so you can select the ones that best complement your color scheme and gardening style. There are the traditional Hens & Chicks (pretty!), but be sure to check out ‘Cobweb’, ‘Chocolate Kiss’, ‘Strawberry Kiwi’, and many, many more.

Echeveria 'Red Tip'

Another reliable choice is from the Agave Family. The Echeveria ‘Red Tip’ will tolerate temperatures down to 15° F, producing red-tipped rosettes, followed by yellow flowers in spring. The flowers are known for attracting hummingbirds and other pollinators, giving us even more reason to celebrate this fun plant.

Stonecrop 'Angelina'

Are you looking for a frost-hardy succulent that makes a great groundcover or spiller in a pot? Stonecrop ‘Angelina’ (from the Sedum Family) will make a fun and unique addition to your garden, providing a generous display of green foliage all year long. In the spring, it will put on a show of star-shaped flower clusters to welcome pollinators.

Lampranthus 'Deltoides'

Difficult to pronounce, but it is truly striking in a pot, or planted in a group. It’s called Lampranthus ‘Deltoides’ (lam-PRAN-thus del-to-i'-dez), a frost-hardy groundcover with a low-growing habit that spreads well. The green color is tinged with gray which looks stunning in a colorful pot.

Care Tips

All of these succulent varieties can be on the same watering schedule which includes deep, infrequent watering. Succulents crave well-draining soil, and for pots we recommend E.B. Stone™ Organics Cactus & Succulent Mix. They don’t get hungry very often, but when needed, our garden gurus recommend
