Common Name: Mexican Hen & Chicks Family: Crassulaceae (The Crassula Family)

Echeveria  Various Cultivars
Zoom In Photo:

Grown primarily for their colourful succulent rosettes in shades of blue, green, grey, white, and pink, Echeveria beg to be combined and contrasted in pots or along pathways. Almost hardy to our temperatures - keep them bone dry from September onward. They can take light frost but must be whisked inside for our cold snaps. They make a no nonsense houseplant for a bright window sill in winter -- in fact don't water them more than sparingly once a month.
