Yarrow, lavender, salvia, and rosemary are great flowering herbs to grow alongside your succulent beds. These herbs take the same conditions as most ground planted succulents. Depending on your layout, plant these herbs at the back of the bed or surround it with them.

Can you mix succulents and flowers?
When mixing flowers and succulents in containers, mix 2 parts potting soil with 1 part pumice or perlite and 1 part horticulture-grade sand to improve drainage. For year-round flowering, combine spring- and summer-blooming flowers with winter-flowering succulents.
What can I put with succulents?
Step 1: Use Potting Mix When planting or repotting succulents, fill a bowl of your choice with potting mix. You can use a special soil mix for succulents, or create your own by mixing potting soil with sand to make it more porous. (Remember: Succulents don’t like wet roots.)
What greenery goes with succulents?
Lavender. With their gray, gray-green, and yellow-green leaves, lavenders look beautiful growing among succulents in a garden. These natives to the Mediterranean, Canary Islands, and Madeira are known for their aromatic scent and spikes of purple flowers.
Are succulents perennials or annuals?
But are succulents perennial or annual plants? There are many types of succulents, but most of them are perennial, which means that they can last for many years. However, some kinds of succulents are annuals, which means that they only grow for a single season and then die.
How do you combine succulents?
You can still combine succulents with different water needs, but you’ll likely find that you have to “spot water” or give those thinner leaved succulents a direct dose of water that doesn’t get to the thicker plants. This can be done with a syringe or the water bottle from my favorite succulent tool kit.
Do succulents like to be crowded?
As a rule, succulent plants do not mind crowding whether the plants are grouped in one container or are alone and fully filled out in the container. Transplanting a plant that has filled its container will generally allow the plant to experience a new spurt of growth.
Do succulents need sun?
Succulents love light and need about six hours of sun per day, depending on the type of succulent. Newly planted succulents can scorch in direct sunlight, so you may need to gradually introduce them to full sun exposure or provide shade with a sheer curtain.
Can succulents stay outside?
A common question is can succulents live outside? The short answer is yes! They thrive in sunny locations with warm, dry climates and can tolerate some neglect, so growing succulents outdoors is a great option. Grow succulents in-ground, in pots, or tuck them away in unexpected planting spots.
Can succulents get too much sun?
While plants need sunlight to perform photosynthesis, some plants can get too much sunlight. While some succulents can be planted in bright sunlight, not all can handle full sun (defined as 6+ hours of direct sunlight per day) or can suffer in too much sunlight.
Do succulents need mulch?
Most succulents don’t like a lot of organic material mixed or tilled into the soil near their roots because it can retain too much moisture. These mulches will allow the soil to dry out while keeping the soil cool and preventing erosion. Succulents planted in pots can be brought indoors for protection from winter cold.
Are succulents cheaper than flowers for a wedding?
If the price of peonies is making your eyes pop, consider adding some succulents to your wedding bouquet. Incorporating these pretty plants tends to be far less expensive than filling your bouquets and centerpieces with flowers alone.
Can you put succulents and cacti together?
Desert cacti, forest cacti, and succulents can all be grown together. They make stunning displays for your houseplant collection. They don’t take a lot of care, but you still need to know what they like and need.
Can ferns and succulents be planted together?
Generally, succulents and ferns should not be planted together as they are each native to different types of environments. Succulents require far less water to grow than ferns, and the soil conditions preferred by ferns are too moist and would harm succulents.
