2017 $1.15 Global: Green Succulent

Succulents – plants with fleshy leaves and stems that store water – can be found decorating homes all over the world.  Their vivid colors and interesting shapes have made them a favorite ornamental plant. The reason succulents have become so popular is their exotic appearance and ease of care.  These plants thrive in warm temperatures with low humidity and little water – perfect conditions for a houseplant.  Succulents make eye-catching additions to home decor, too.  Some are green, while others have bright accents like blue, yellow or red.  Each variety has interestingly shaped leaves and grows in a unique way:  Some are tall and sprawling while others grow close together and near the ground.  Anyone can find a type that suits their style. 

One of the most popular succulent species is “hen and chicks.”  This variety consists of many leaves clustered together, resembling a flower – like the echeveria on this stamp.  The main plant (hen) stays fairly small, but will produce lots of sprouts (chicks) that grow nearby.  Before long, they will fill up a garden.

With their hardiness and striking appearance, succulents have been used for more than just potted plants.  They are found in centerpieces, bouquets and even boutonnières and corsages.  These one-of-a-kind plants are sure to be popular for many years to come.
