Succulents in full sun
Do all succulents take full sun? I live in Long Beach, California and have different kinds of succulents that I want to plant in containers.

Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. The vast majority of succulents thrive in full sun, but if you look hard enough, you may be able to find a variety or two that doesn't mind a little shade. Read the plant tags at your local garden center --- they should give you a sense of the light requirements of the particular plants.
