Native to North, Mexico, and South America, these succulents grow well in desert conditions but can also tolerate some moisture, as long as you don’t water them until the soil is well-drained.

Echeveria can often be recognized by its gorgeous rosette-shaped with striking plump, spoon-like leaves. They usually have pointy tip but the edges of the leaf are smooth.

Echeveria are polycarpic plant, meaning they bloom every year. In the spring or early summer, growers can spot their flowers stemming from chubby-leaved rosettes. These stems are long, slim and are topped by bell-shaped blooms. The flowers’ colors ranges from pink, peach to orange, sometimes can be white or yellow.
