Which succulents will tolerant a rainy and cold season? I live in California, near Sacramento, and I believe we are either 9a or 9b. Winter is wet and we have some pretty cold nights, just below freezing, but no snow. My mother-in-law wants to make an outdoor garden, in the ground. I keep all my succulents in pots, because I’ve experienced rain killing them. Suggestions??? I was thinking senecio mandraliscae (sp), maybe some jade, or other crassula... those have done we for me in wetter and cold conditions.
I’m near you and leave mine out year round; the key is good drainage and watering at the right time. That having been said, I have had good luck with aeonium, sedum, crassula, graptovera, and ecchevaria and less luck with hawthornia / aloes. Enjoy!
The toughest would be several aloe species, several agave species, and several cacti. The good thing is theres a lot of large ones thay look good in a landscape.
