  • Plant collectors have long appreciated orchids and African violets for their winter bloom cycle.  
    I have amassed a collection of both and they help me get through the winter with their colorful interest. But violets and orchids are not the only classes of plants that can deliver in the winter; think succulents.  
    Succulents are plants that have adapted to environments that receive very little rainfall.  They can store moisture, using small amounts when needed.
