Succulent plants, also known simply as succulents were certainly a popular entry at the annual Fruit Flower and Vegetable Show in Yorkton.
For those not familiar with succulents they are plants which have some parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions.
According to an online search, the word ‘succulent’ comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning juice, or sap
Succulents are often grown as ornamental plants because of their unusual appearance which was evidenced in the diverse entries.
The annual show, which is hosted by the Yorkton Horticultural Society was held at St. Gerard’s Parish Complex.
