2017 is the year of the succulent…and let’s face it, how could it not be? These trending beauties check a lot of boxes when it comes to an eye-catching and whimsy plant! But have you ever wondered what exactly a succulent is? Well, succulents derive their name from the Latin word “succos,” meaning juice. Thus, they are known in the botanical world as water storage plants; as they store a myriad of different juices in their leaves and/or spines (some of which even have medicinal properties).

These plants are extremely versatile in shapes, sizes and grow in an array of climates and zones across the world – from beaches to jungles and even deserts! So yes, that means that cacti, aloe vera, and even asparagus all belong under the umbrella of the succulent family! Neat, right?
