Succulents.. a definite must have 

Succulents and cacti are not everybody's cup of tea, but when living in a Mediterranean climate, where the summers are hot and dry, they are a very welcome addition to any garden, patio, balcony, porch.  
Low in maintenance, easy to keep, most are easy to propagate, most are disease free/resistant, low water requirements, I mean what more could one want? 

They come in all sorts of shapes, forms and sizes, still many people find them boring. 
They are also so easy to propagate, meaning that with only a small investment, one can grow some more relatively quickly and easy.

Kalanchoe, so many different colours, shapes, heights, and so easy to 
grow and keep in a pot

Echeveria's, beautiful shaped, coloured and marked succulents, 
easy to maintain, easy to grow..

Aeoniums come in so many different varieties and colours, 
they are a welcome addition to any garden, patio, balcony, or porch; 
Mediterranean or not. 
There are thankfully so many different varieties available.
