Echeveria sp.

Echeveria sp.

Description:

Maybe a hybrid of Echeveria elegans, hens and chicks. Many Echeveria species are popular as garden plants.They are drought-resistant, although they do better with regular deep watering and fertilizing. Most will tolerate shade and some frost, although hybrid species tend to be less tolerant. They can be propagated easily by separating offsets, but may also be propagated by leaf cuttings, and by seed if they are not hybrids. Echeverias are polycarpic, meaning that they may flower and set seed many times over the course of their lifetimes.

Habitat:

Spotted at the backyard garden
