WEEPING SUCCULENTS

 

Weeping succulents are given their name because as they grow, they are drawn towards the ground. Due to their trailing nature, these succulents will look perfect in hanging baskets, window boxes or atop retaining walls - where they can spill over the edges. Here are some of the most popular hanging succulents on the market:
