Succulents can be seen as independent plants; however, they are easy to mix and match with other colorful flowers, such as roses, ranunculus, daisies, mums, or stocks. While the most common succulent color is green, you can find them in almost any color of the rainbow, including red, orange, yellow, and purple. Have fun and create your own masterpiece!
