Plant a living wreath to hang on your doorway, fence, porch or deck to enjoy through the Season. I am head over heels over this heart living wreath! I will show you a few different living wreaths to give you an idea of what can be done with drought tolerant Succulents. 

You can purchase wreath forms from your local craft store in a number of shapes and sizes. The bigger the form the easier it is for it retain water.
