Extraordinarily prolific, Echeveria prolifica is an evergreen spreading succulent with small rosettes of fleshy, plump, pale silvery-green leaves adorned with pink overtones. In spring, it displays compact clusters of bright yellow flowers atop 6-10 in. long stems (15-20 cm). These inflorescences have thick leafy bracts that fall off and root easily. This Echeveria offsets readily and will quickly form a pretty small scale ground cover or quickly fill out containers.
