Succulents for sale: The best places to buy colorful succulents online

Finding succulents for sale online, especially colorful varieties, can be hard to do. This post will help you find great sources for the succulents on your wish list!

I’ve purchased quite a few succulents so I thought I’d share some of my findings with you! Buying succulents can be a lot of fun, but depending on where you live it can be hard to find them.

Succulents and Sunshine is reader supported. We may earn a commission, if you purchase through links on our site, such as Mountain Crest Gardens, Amazon, or Etsy. We only promote products we use and trust.

Fortunately with their rising popularity I’m finding that many more nurseries are starting to carry them. If you are in California, or an area that is warm for the majority of the year, it should be pretty easy to find a nearby nursery that sells succulents.

Colder areas are starting to carry succulents as well, however, the availability and quality vary greatly depending on the time of year.

But, the great thing is…

There are tons of succulents for sale online!

And these online sellers are fantastic too. Below you'll find some of my favorite places to buy succulents online.

Mountain Crest Gardens

My all time favorite place to buy succulents online is Mountain Crest Gardens. I may be a little biased because they sell a huge selection of cold hardy succulents and that's the only thing I can grow year round outdoors. However, they also have a great selection of tender succulents as well.

My favorite thing from Mountain Crest is their wholesale succulents. Anyone can buy them and they are such a great price! If you don't mind getting a mixed variety instead of specific plants you pick out, this is definitely the way to go.

They also have a fun monthly succulent subscription where you receive 4 unique plants each month. There is so much variety from month to month you'll end up with a diverse collection of succulents!

Leaf and Clay

Another amazing source for succulents is Leaf and Clay. They always have a great collection of succulents and cacti available and frequently stock a limited number of rare succulent varieties. If you're looking for something new or unusual, this is the shop for you!

You'll find a lot of colorful succulents and some in larger sizes too. While most succulent shops sell 2" succulents, Leaf and Clay has a number of succulents in 3" and 4" sizes.

The Succulent Source

Another great place to purchase succulents online is from The Succulent Source. The Succulent Source has high quality plants that are sure to live up to your standards.

You can get a variety of different packages from them including flats of succulents that work well for wedding favors, succulent cuttings, a succulent of the month club, and more!

Their cuttings are designed to be used in bouquets, boutonnieres and other fun projects, but they'll work for just about anything!


There are so many great sellers with a wide variety of succulents on! Check out the selection that Succulent Beauties and Succulent Babies carry.

In addition to buying individual succulents, many sellers on Etsy sell completed arrangements. If you're looking for a gift to send someone, take look at the beautiful compositions from I Dream of Succulents and Vertical Flora.

And of course, you can find a lot of great pottery to go with your succulents.

Local Nurseries

If you don't want to purchase succulents online, call around (or stop by) your local nurseries. I found that with the rise in popularity, more nurseries are carrying succulents on a regular basis.

If your local nursery doesn’t carry succulents, you can also check Lowes and Home Depot. I’ve found a surprisingly good selection there and the prices aren’t too bad.

Generally they cost about $3-4 for a small pot. Be sure to check out my post about what to look for when buying succulents so you find the best specimens.
