The last time I visited North Carolina, I was consumed by succulents. Between Plant Delights Nursery and the JC Raulston Arboretum, I was in heaven! Here are some shots of my favorites.

Welcome to the Fine Gardening GARDEN PHOTO OF THE DAY blog! Every weekday we post a new photo of a great garden, a spectacular plant, a stunning plant combination, or any number of other subjects. Think of it as your morning jolt of green.

Sign up to get new posts delivered to your inbox each morning so you'll always remember to take a look, or subscribe to our RSS feed. We look forward to sharing our garden travels with you.

READER PHOTOS: We love featuring your photos, too. If you think you have a photo that we should share on the Garden Photo of the day, email us. Send hi-res images if possible. We'll only respond if we plan to use your photo.

KrisRhodes writes: Great shots, would be nice if you included the species name and variety and whether they were winter hardy. Considering they are in pots, I assume not winter hardy. Posted: 10:51 am on April 21st
