These hardy plants thrive on benign neglect. Get this look
This arrangement of stonecrop, Mexican snowball, and hens and chicks, by garden designer Molly Wood, works well on a rustic table. A vintage chicken feeder plucked from eBay requires only drainage holes to keep roots from getting soggy, a bag of cactus soil, and a topping of pebbles. The metal’s weathered patina contrasts nicely with the smooth, plump leaves. Along with contributing color and texture, this living tabletop accessory is practically self-sustaining, requiring little more than a modicum of watering.
