In the Garden: Paul James on succulents; varieties, planting, watering, maintenance

TULSA - The family of succulent plants contains more than just cacti!

Gardening expert Paul James, with Southwood Landscape and Garden Center , says this type of plant "thrives on neglect."

Paul says that most succulents that grow in our area will be a perennial but only if brought in during the winter.

He says that most often succulents don't survive because we "kill them with kindness!" A little water is a good thing but too much of it can actually kill the plant.

Paul also told me what succulent is related to asparagus.
