Echeveria prolifica (Prolific Echeveria)

Prolific Echeveria


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.

  • Grows up to 6 in. tall (15 cm).
  • Easily grown in sandy, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in sun or partial shade. Water occasionally. Drought tolerant
  • Perfect as groundcover, Mediteranean gardens or for containers where spectacular floral arrangements can be created.
  • Deer resistant
  • Virtually disease free. Watch for mealybugs, vine weevil and aphids
  • Mostly native to Mexico
