INVERT A TOMATO CAGE in a pot, cover it with chicken wire, then fill with spaghnum moss on the outside, peat moss inside. Poke in Sedums, hen and chicks, Sempervivum, Echeveria, Graptoveria, Graptopetalum, Pachyphytum, Pachyveria and other succulents. You created a TOPIARY TREE covered with "roses"!

This is a project that enthralls and intrigues everyone who sees it; you can build one too; just pick up a couple of coir lined hanging baskets, fill with soil, wire them together and stick some Sempervivum chicks on the coir. After a year, they will fill in and be totally covered. What a great use for your succulent collection!

Make a Succulent Topiary. A succulent topiary suggests an evergreen tree yet makes viewers do a double take. It’s a container garden with a twist: a moss-filled cone planted with eye-catching, low-water, easy-care succulents. This topiary offers a fresh and engaging way to expand your garden artistry.
