Plant Family Guides: Echeveria Plant-Family Guides
Native to Mexico and Central America, Echeverias are regarded by many as one of the most beautiful succulents. Evergreen, they form attractive rosettes of fleshy leaves and often resemble plum-petaled roses, waterlilies or ruffled lettuce. There are dozens of species, and hundreds of cultivars offering a wide array of colors, sizes or leaf shapes.
There is a wide range of perennial plants that will bring out the best qualities of your succulents and share their space with a serene balance.
If you limit yourself to the succulent palette, there is a high probability your garden will look heavy and rigid since lacking the movement ornamental grasses provide.
Find a list of pretty shrubs that share most of the growing requirements of cacti and succulents. They will bring out the best in both the succulents and their world.
