Succulents: Designing With Moody Pales

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

Fiesta-bright succulents are always a wonderful addition to the full sun garden, but this season, we’re entranced by those that we’re calling “moody pales.” Sheer colors—warm, fleshy pinks, cool silvery blues, pinkish-burgundy, and silvery foliage—that add romance, while still being as fuss-free as any other type of succulent. Here are a few ideas to get you going!

A moss-lined planter is stuffed to overflow with a mix of succulents, but the idea here is to keep to one colorway. Pinks, purples, variegated… and plenty of each.

Blue-silver chalksticks add the cool note to this planter of fleshy-pink and pinkish-burgundy sedums. This combination thrives in full sun outdoors, and indoors with full sun and careful watering.
