The jade plant is an old-fashioned favorite succulent for a reason: It's so easy to grow! This long-lived South African native grows thick stems and thick, glossy green leaves tinged with red. Allow the soil to dry completely between waterings.
Burro's Tail~ Distinctive burro's tail (Sedum morganianum) bears succulent gray-green leaves that overlap on trailing stems to create a taillike effect. The leaves easily drop off; you can pot them to start new plants.
