Why a succulent anti-war poster? Click here to read a post by Garden Rant blog contributor, Ivette Soler (comments included). Then, click here to read a rebuttal to it by the reigning Queen of Succulent Design, Debra Lee Baldwin (yes, the comments too). Now, don’t you think they’re both right? After all …
… succulents will always be favorites for lovers of interesting, gorgeous, low-water, low-maintenance, plants; their excellent qualities are not in dispute. They will forever have a place in the gardens, containers, and hearts of all who love them. And, there will always be a demand for books, videos and speakers on succulents as a subject. That said, even succulents will be subject to trends and the vagaries of fashion … 10 years from now people will snicker openly about hot gluing aeoniums to their barrettes, and the time the bride carried a bouquet made exclusively of echeverias. HOT/NOT, IN/OUT: It’s gonna happen.

Soler and Baldwin are right. Hug it out, ladies!
