Giant Succulents Exist For People Who Love Larger-Than-Life Plants

Who here sucks at keeping plants alive? Raise your hand. I'm going to raise my hand slowly. It's hard to admit, but I, too, have a hard time with plants.

But did you know that the easiest plants to keep alive and thriving are succulents? Not only that but, now there are these large varieties that are perfect for an outdoor garden. Heck, ya — sign me up!

Needless to say, I was quite thrilled. Succulents don't usually need too much babysitting and can do quite well with little to no attention. Does that sound like a perfect plant to you?

It is "Euphorbia Canariensis," or more commonly known as "Canary Island Spurge." As you probably guessed, you can find it on the narrow coastal belt in the Canary Islands. What a unique plant, huh?
