We Get Oregon Succulent Questions
I’m heading to a wedding and would like to bring a hand-made succulent arrangement as a wedding gift. What are some succulents that can survive the lack of sun that Eugene has most of the year? Are there good resources that show which succulents would work well in that climate zone?
P.S. I’m thinking it can be an indoor arrangement to help regulate the ridiculous amount of rain it would get otherwise outside in Eugene.
The best options for low-light succulents are the Haworthias. They tend to be small, but there is a lot of variation in the look. Also, there are a number of Crassulas, green Aeoniums, and even some Aloes that can handle fairly low light levels, though not full shade. For outdoor in Eugene, there’s a book called “Hardy Succulents” that list lots of succulents and the colder zones they can handle.
