Plant Families / Echeveria
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. Easy to grow and low care, these little plants compliment sunny borders, rock gardens and help creating terrific container compositions, living wreaths or vertical gardens. Like all succulents, Echeverias need sun and well-draining soil.
