THE SUCCULENT SITUATION TENDER SUCCULENTS At Phoenix Perennials we are proud to offer one of the largest and most diverse selections of succulents in Canada. In 2022 we bring you more than 200 different rare, unusual, and intriguing succulents. These are available for advance ordering by both our local and mail order customers for pick-up or shipping once the succulents are ready. They will also be available in the nursery, again once they are ready, which will be some time in May. We do recommend ordering in advance since many succulents will sell out during the advance ordering period.
All of our Tender Succulents are provided as potted plants, unless otherwise noted, so you will not need to pot them up and root them. Though we sometimes call The Succulent Situation a pre-order, since the plants come ready at the same time as our Main Catalogue items, you can mix succulents with any other plants in the Main Catalogue.
Tender succulents are usually hardy in zones 8 or 9 through 11. Some could be hardy in coastal BC if protected from rain but most require indoor winter protection and temperatures above about 5 degrees Celsius. In winter, keep your succulents cool, dry and in bright light. In summer, give them full to part sun and lots of heat. Also, don't be afraid to give them a good amount of water and some fertilizer at this time. Just let them dry out between waterings and apply fertilizer at half strength.
