One of our favorite water-wise succulents is Echeveria elegans also known as the ‘Mexican Snowball’. This plant is incredibly hardy as it grows low and spreads. It also provides great color and contrast to other darker or large-leafed plants with its soft, grey-green foliage. It’s a perfect solution as a ground cover or for inserting into rock walls or any other random crevice you can find in a rocky area. Best of all, it’s incredibly easy to propagate. Just pull out one of the stems and plant it in moist soil to start a new, slow-growing cluster of beautiful snowballs.
