Boy, can I relate to the concept of "wanting to have them all" when it comes to ordering new succulents! I just set up a little tent-style greenhouse on a sunny patch of land specifically so I can treat those babies right! I placed a LARGE order with SMG (www.smgsucculents.com) and everything arrived in great shape, carefully packed in little brown bags with printed tags accompanying each cutting. They, too have a great website and my only problem was holding myself back from ordering more. Thanks for the article, Geoff.
How can I tell which succulents are likely to survive in my climate?
I have been growing a purple sedum "Postman's pride", but lately I've been tempted by things like Echeveria, semperviviums, and other sedums. I'm in South Carolina, which is very humid most of the year, in zone 8.
