What's New

November 18: we are now closed for the winter and will reopen Spring 2014.

Our sincere thanks go to all our plant friends who ordered this year.

We have had many requests for our Pachypodium culture guide and in response we have made it available here. This is specific to the genus Pachypodium and is different from our regular culture guide for succulents.

Welcome to Highland Succulents, a leading specialist nursery devoted to the cultivation and preservation of rare and endangered succulent plants.

If you want to know all about these unusual plants and how to grow them, you've come to the right place.

Our specialties:

Pachypodium - our pioneering work in this genus has contributed to their phenomenal popularity.

Adenium - using specialized growing methods, we are a source for natural looking plants.

Crassulaceae - few plant groups possess the exquisite form and dazzling color of this family.

Echeveria - a pictorial display featuring a large selection of our yearly offering of these colorful succulents.

Unrooted cuts - many beautiful species from several genera are available as unrooted cuts which is an economical way to add to your collection.

Our business is in its 37th year but our longevity has been no accident. We are fanatical about plant quality, give good service, and offer all types of succulents. You won't be disappointed!

Shipping Plants - many growers are unaware that shipping plants safely is very difficult. Your order cannot be pulled from a shelf, put in a box, and sent out immediately. Please give this page a look before ordering.

Even though we're closed for the winter months, we like to stay in touch with our plant friends, especially you die hard growers (you know who you are), by offering you a unique view of some very special succulent plants. Many of these you may not have heard of or seen before so hopefully they will enrich your knowledge and understanding of rare plant life.

Each week will feature a new species so check back often. All of the images were captured by us of our own plants over our several decades of growing succulent plants. Please note that we do not have these plants for sale. They are for your viewing enjoyment.

Apr 14, 2014 Pacypodium baronii v. windsorii - From northern Madagascar, this slow growing species has always appealed to growers. It's fairly easy to grow but like most Pachypodiums, it must be kept restrained or you will end up with no caudex and lots of big leaves and floppy etiolated stems. This principal can be a barrier for many who just can't resist growing in large pots with copious amounts of nutrients. Our illustration plant is about 5 inches in width at the base but is growing nicely in a 3.5 inch container.
