“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”

– Albert Einstein

Lately we’ve had a green thumb and really wanted to document some of our favorite succulents that bring a lot of characteristic and personality to homes, gardens and office atmospheres. In botany, it’s pretty easy to say these plants visually are some of the most alluring and have much diversity in their appearances, which make them a good selection for many gardens and homes.

Succulents have become known as signature plants that colonize Southern California’s coastline. Therefore it only made sense for us to document them so that we could further highlight their sacred geometry, colors and natural organic patterns. Besides who doesn’t love to see inspirational images of these unique plant life forms?

The word ‘succulent’ comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning juice, or sap. Following are some of the scientific names of the succulents we photographed:

・Yellow Sedum Japonica
・Echeveria ‘Tippy’
・Sedum Dasyphyllum
・Cotyledon Ladismithiensis
・Cotyledon Orbiculata var. Oophylla
・Fenestraria Rhopalophylla
・Sempervivum Arachnoideum
・Euphorbia Tirucalli “Sticks on Fire”
・Crassula Peluda var. Minima
・Aeonium Zwartkop
・Sedum Pachyphyllum
・Aeonium Kiwi
・Senecio Haworthii “Wooly Senecio”
・Calandrinia Grandiflora
・Crassula “Morgan’s Beauty”
・Crassula Perforata var. Nealeana
・Echeveria Peacockii
・Gasteria “Little Warty”
・Echeveria “Violet Queen”

Special thanks to Quinn and Wyatt over at Shore Gardens in San Clemente, California for providing us with these beautiful specimens.
