The Haworthia is a miniature succulent native to South Africa, and is one of the easiest houseplants to care for. It is characterized by its architectural structure, typically solitary columns which form in layers, though this can differ widely between varieties and even within the same species. A common Haworthia is characterized by its rosette-shaped, tightly packed leafy clusters. Some are firm, tough, and dark green, whereas other species are softer and even translucent. Those of the firm, dark green variety are typically dotted with white spots and can turn a rich hue of purple-red when exposed to full sun.
Coleus has long been a go-to choice for shady plantings, and now many sun-loving varieties are readily available as well. A multitude of foliage hues and variegation patterns from the many named varieties allows for endless design possibilities. Especially attractive with trailing and narrowly vertical plant companions.
The perfect choice for beds and borders. Superb for baskets, containers and window boxes. Wonderful for combination plantings.
