Succulents, such as this agave attenuta, grow well in the Southwest Florida climate. The plants are able to withstand dry conditions, hot temperatures, strong winds and poor soil conditions, and they require little maintenance.

  • Most succulents grow well in container gardens, which is a good option for seasonal residents. Pictured here is a pachypodium lamerei in sandy soil.
