These handsome wall planters are bona fide conversation pieces. Fill the planters with a lightweight, soilless potting mix, then plant a mesmerizing mosaic with your choice of succulents. Water every 7–10 days, removing the planters from the wall and laying flat while watering.

Wall Decoration

Take hardy succulents into the landscape for easy-care impact. They’re a natural in the hot, dry microenvironment of a sun-baked stone wall because they require little water. Here, Sempervivum ‘Emerald Empress’ sits atop the wall while ‘Angelina’ sedum spills out of the gaps.

Succulent Success

Soil. Succulents don’t like excess water around their roots. To prevent that, use a quick-draining soil mix: 2 parts soilless potting mix, 1 part perlite, and 1 part coarse builder’s sand.
Light. Many succulents prefer full sunlight but will do just fine indoors in bright indirect light. Too much shade will not be tolerated. Consult the plant tag to be sure.
Temperature. Although some succulents, such as sedum, are hardy, others need protection in winter. Bring them indoors before frost.

A multitude of forms, colors, and habits make succulents versatile performers. Fill your containers with artful combinations.
