In Michigan, tropical succulents need to be inside during the harsh and cold winter months. During the summer months, most tropical succulents benefit from being outside, just be sure to wait until the chance of frost is over before you take them outdoors or plant them in your garden.

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.

Echeveria Blue Sky Succulent
A very attractive succulent with rosettes that can reach up to 6-inches in diameter, and has bluish-green leaves with a touch of soft pink along the margins. Its leaves are coated in thick farina, giving this plant a soft powdery look and allowing it to tolerate full sun.
Succulents love light and need about six hours of sun per day, depending on the type of succulent. Newly planted succulents can scorch in direct sunlight, so you may need to gradually introduce them to full sun exposure or provide shade with a sheer curtain.
Succulent Outdoor Plants
Sedum and sempervivum are easy to grow and adaptable to bright, sunny locations or even slightly dappled areas. Whatever types of plants you choose, succulents need well-drained soil. They can thrive in cracks and crevasses, rockeries, and sandy or gritty soils.
Preferably 40 degrees and up. Temperatures under freezing are simply too cold for these plants to survive. Their plump and fleshy leaves where they store water will freeze and rot the plant. Frost hardy succulents will tolerate -20 degrees F.
Generally it’s best to wait until after the last frost and when the nights don’t drop below 40F. While you could plant some succulents outside before then, you’ll find the best success with planting when the weather is warmer. Avoid waiting until summer though, as the heat can cause just as many problems as the cold.
