Echeveria nodulosa (Painted Echeveria)

Painted Echeveria, Echeveria discolor, Echeveria misteca, Cotyledon nodulosa


Extraordinarily eye-catching, Echeveria nodulosa (Painted Echeveria) is a fascinating evergreen succulent forming 5 in. wide rosettes (12 cm) of fleshy, pointed, concave, olive green leaves adorned with vivid red markings on both margins and mid leaf. In summer, a 2 ft. tall flowering spike (60 cm), bearing pale yellow flowers with pinkish red markings, emerges above the rosettes. Like Hen & Chicks Sempervivum, this Echeveria forms a central rosette of foliage surrounded by many offsets. A great choice for sunny gardens or containers.

  • Grows up to 1-2 ft. tall (30-60 cm) and 2-3 ft. wide (60-90 cm). If grown in a container, this plant will grow as large as the container allows.
  • Easily grown in sandy, dry, well-drained soils in sun or partial shade. Indoors, provide bright light. Best in partial shade in hot summer areas. Once established, requires occasional water during the hot season. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
  • Perfect for rock gardens, containers where spectacular floral arrangements can be created.
  • Virtually disease free. Watch for mealybugs, vine weevil and aphids
  • Native to Mexico
