Slow-growing, Echeveria lilacina is an evergreen succulent with perfectly symmetrical, flat rosettes (10 in. or 25cm) of fleshy, plump, spoon-shaped, silvery-gray leaves adorned with a lovely lilac to coral-pink blush in full sun. In late winter to early spring, this Echeveria displays coral flowers on reddish, arching stems, about 6 in. tall (15 cm). It often remains solitary and does not offset readily. A great choice for containers.
