Flowering Succulent Plants

Succulent Plants with Flowers

As if succulent plants aren't already intriguing and beautiful enough, on top of their interesting textures and forms some of them also have the most incredible flowers.

Flowering succulent plants range from simply interesting, to gorgeous, to outright flamboyant. 

It's almost as if they figure they won't attract the right insects if they're too subtle, so they produce these incredibly complex and colorful flowers.

Some attract insects by scent, sometimes not the kind of perfume that attracts us, in the case of Stapelia and Huernia. 

These are also known as Carrion Flowers, so that should give you an indication of how they smell.

Others, like many of the Kalanchoe species offer spires and spikes of bell like blooms, in multi colored striped and blended flowers.

Flamboyant, fabulous flower

Cactus plants are renowned for their gorgeous fleeting tissue paper flowers, only after a long period of drought.

Ephiphytes like Schlumbergera and Epiphyllum are misleadingly dull - until they flower with masses of flowers all at once, or with dinner plate sized orchid blooms.
