There are many varieties of Jade, all of which are now available at our Irvine location. Some varities like, Hobbit & Gollum, are great for bonsai plants and container gardners because of their overall size(3′), while the tradional Crassula Ovata “Jade” can grow quiet tall(6’+). The two variegated varieties “Oblique” and “Hummels Sunset” have similar leaf structure to the traditional Jade, but don’t grow with the same vigor. We have also found increasing success using these plants in lower light condidtions, making them ideal for house plant arrangements, just be carefull not to overwater them!

Black Rose Aeonium

A great way to bring some soft height into a design. These plants are truly amazing. The name Aeonium ‘Zwartkop’ comes from the dutch translation of “black head”, but it is also thought to have been of a German hybridization going under the name ‘Schwartzkopf’. Plants...

Sedum Nussbaumerianum – Coppertone Stonecrop

Graptopetalum paraguayensis , or the "ghost plant", is a great, trailing, wandering, ground cover. We love the colors that this plant brings out in a design, complementing the blues, pinks, and purples that so many of the gorgeous succulents have to offer. Each plant...

Euphorbia Tirucalli ‘Pencil Cactus’

While the Euphorbia Tirucalli can be a very rewarding plant, we must be very careful in where we plant them and in propagation. The milky white latex found in the plant can be dangerous to the skin and most definitely will cause serious damage if swallowed, or if any...

Euphorbia Leucodendron – Cat Tails

More architechtual than its more wild counter part, Euphorbia Tirucalli, the Euphorbia Leucodendron has thicker, more erect, and less bushy branches. We like the use of these euphorbia as small shrubbing barriers as it grows only to 4’ tall in containers. The...

Saguaro and Cardon

The Carnegiea Gigantea, “Saguaro”, and Pachycereus Pringlei, “Cardon”, are very similar cactus with extremely dissimilar growth rates. The Saguaro can grow over 50’ tall with many branching arms, but it may take up to 75 years for it to develop it’s arms, and some...

Succulent Leaves

Have you ever taken a close look at the leaves on your succulents? They can tell you a lot about themselves. While all succulents tend to have a more “plump” appearance, some do more than others. A good, general, guideline with succulents is to water them based on the...

Sedum Morganium (Donkey’s Tail)

Sedum Morganium, more commonly known as the “Donkey’s Tail” can be thought of as a common plant. Here at Orange County Succulents we pride ourselves in doing the common, uncommonly well. To an untrained eye a donkeys tail is a donkeys tail, but to us we see so much...

Carunculations (Echeveria Etna)

Named after the most active and violent volcano in all of  europe. Sicily’s Mt. Etna has been active for over a million years and is still erupting today. The word ‘etna’ is derived from the phoenician word meaning “furnace”. This particular echeveria is not the first...

Larger Echeveria (Echeveria Blue Curls)

We believe that echeveria can be classified in three different size categories. Small: echeveria lola, echeveria decora,echeveria glauca, echeveria harmsii, echeveria violet queen, medium: echeveria agavoides, echeveria black knight,echeveria blue sky, echeveria...

Blue Sky Echeveria

We would classify this friendly and vigorous succulent as one of the quicker and larger echeveria. While individual rosettes can grow up to 8” inches wide, it will also offset freely to form large solid clumps over a foot wide. With more sun and colder nights,...
