In part 2 of the Venice Garden & Home Tour series, we find ourselves in the garden. If there is one staple that any Venice “flower” garden must have, it’s the quirky and intriguing succulent.

As a design element, succulents add both beauty and edge to a space. Think of them as the delicate flower’s bad-ass cousin. The ombre nature of their coloring effortlessly fades from green to purple to red; and while this coloring is stunningly beautiful, the succulent’s sturdy composition and texture is nothing short of tough.

There was no shortage of succulent sightings on the tour. Here are my top 5.
