Donna Mae Popma has a beautiful collection of hyperfuta containers and succulents!

"I'd like to share my hypertufa container gardening. I live in Grand Rapids, MI. I just love all the variety of succulents available. Unfortunately I can't stand to let them die; so I have to dig them up & transfer them to containers to bring in the house for the winter & I keep buying MORE!!  Hen & chicks & stonecrop are about it for surviving the winter in Michigan. My husband helped me make the coffee table by making a mold for me & cutting the cedar pieces for the base."
