I have a recent love for succulents. They are such a perfect porch plant and are extremely low maintenance - just my style. I have five pots of them on my screened porch. They bring so much color and life to a setting even though they are not a bright bouquet of flowers. You can buy them already potted or mix several different kinds to make your own creation. It's quick and very easy. I would love to have an entire garden, but I am definitely not in the right climate.
