Echeveria lilacina is one of the prettiest Echeverias. Its pale silvery grey fleshy leaves give it the haunting nickname "Ghost Echeveria". When planted in a garden, the almost white leaves create a striking contrast against the usual green of other plants/ succulents. In late winter to early spring, Echeveria lilacina produces coral lantern shaped flowers on reddish stems. A solitary plant, it rarely grows offsets.
Soil: Gritty and Sandy. Light: Partial Sun. Water: Avoid letting water sit for too long in the rosette to prevent rot and fungal diseases. Care instruction: Dead leaves should be removed from the plant as soon as possible to ward off pests.
