Succulents in Christmas Bouquets

Holiday Bouquet Alternative: Succulents

If you're tired of paper whites, amaryllis, poinsettia, and other standard holiday fare, try a bouquet featuring succulents this holiday season.

I featured several succulent bouquets at our annual holiday party this past weekend, which I mixed with yellow freesia and lavender-tinged calla lilies, I love the way the flowers looked together, and they were a nice departure from the classic red-and-green color scheme prevalent at most holiday gatherings. I harvested the succulents from a friend's overgrown succulent patch in her backyard, so the arrangements were quite cost-friendly, too.

Another great aspect of succulents is that you can replant them after you've used them for your bouquets. Simply bury about half of the stalk, stripped of leaves, in soil. Water every two to three days, and you'll have a new plant rooting and growing in no time!
