Succulents that are frost hardy?
What succulents, other than sedum, can handle a bit of frost?
I would love to rip out all of my front lawn and make it into a drought tolerant garden and I love succulents, but some of the local garden centers are saying that I might have to drape sheets over succulents in the winter when the temperatures drop.
I would like to keep things simple and not have to fuss over them if I can help it.
The front yard is in full sun for the most part and has a slight grade to it (might be better for drainage I think?)
Any suggestions would be much appreciated :)
I live in San Jose, Sunset zone 15 I think? I moved from Canada, so am feeling nervous about doing this project. I do have the sunset gardening books, but sometimes the temperature restrictions are vague.
I wish I could find local people who are obsessed with plants but I have yet to meet anyone...all of my neighbors use mow and blow services it seems.
