Blue Echeveria (Echeveria secunda)

Echeveria is a large genus of succulent rosette like plants that are spectacular in flower beds and pots. They are evergreen and very rewarding.

Echeveria are drought resistant and can handle periods of no water at all. They however do perform better with regular deep watering and fertilizing.

Echeveria form low growing rosettes about 10 – 15 cm in diameter. They have a fleshy pale blue- green leaf which is edged in light pink and is extremely attractive especially when planted en mass. They do produce a colourful bell shaped flower on a protruding pink stem in the summer months but this does not attract as much attention as the dramatically shaped leaves, growth pattern and colour do.

Echeveria is easy to grow and produces “offspring” in abundance. They are perfect to use as pot fillers or in the front of garden beds where they will form a thick cover. This thick ground cover means easy weed control and low maintenance gardens!
