Succulents in North Carolina

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.

    Great shots, Michelle, love the agaves. My succulents are going to be very happy when they can be outside for the summer. I'm counting the days!

    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.

    I love your first sentence. Being consumed by succulents must have been an exciting experience! Since you're still here to write about it, I assume they regurgitated you afterwards. ;)
