Agave Varigated ‘Real Feel’
About 60 different plant families contain succulents. Succulent plants often store water in structures such as the leaves and/or stems resulting in parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy. These parts by retaining water give the plants an advantage in arid climates. In families such as cactaceae, (cactus), Agavoideae, (Agave), and Crassulaceae (crassula), most plants are succulents. The habitats of these water preserving plants are often in areas with high temperatures and low rainfall.
