Succulents are perfect for the forgetful gardener and really pack a lot of punch with the different textures and colors they provide.

Drought-tolerant plants are having a design moment. Bring this trend to life this spring via the unique colors and dramatic textures with the new Desert Escape Collection from Costa Farms.

Created for today’s eco-conscious gardener, these no-fuss cacti and succulents make a bold statement in any space with unique colors, architectural shapes and sublime textures.

These plants are tough-as-nails and thrive with little to no care. With many areas of the country facing drought, it’s important to be water conscious when it comes to the garden. These plants store water for when they need it, making them extremely drought-tolerant.

“Succulents are perfect for the forgetful gardener and really pack a lot of punch with the different textures and colors they provide,” says Nick McCullough, APLD landscape designer and author. “I love using desert rose, echeveria and agave in planters and landscapes.”

The Desert Escape Collection features low-maintenance, high-impact cacti and succulents, including flashy desert rose with striking red, pink or white flowers; low-growing echeverias and aloes; and upright cacti, for a look that is simply beautiful.

Costa Farms has categorized the plants as border, accent, and statement plants, to give your yard an exceptional, unique look. McCullough recommends mixing different textures and colors of cacti and succulents to personalize your garden beds, borders, and containers. Display Desert Escape plants in brightly colored containers to create a focal point on porches or decks.

In container gardens, cacti and succulents create a dramatic look that survives summer heat with minimal watering. “I love using combinations in a low bowl around a pool or patio area that gets ton of sun and has limited water access,” McCullough says.

Look for The Desert Escape collection at home improvement centers and mass merchandisers in the US and Canada. For more information, check out the Desert Escape Collection at
