  • Description and Cultural Plant Tips

    This Echeveria grows on a short stalk and the rosette is the star of the show.  It can grow up to 18” across and is shaped like a large water lily.  The color has been described as other worldly . It is best grown in full sun.  It doesn’t seem to burn even in the hot sun and the colors glow in full light.  It was hybridized by Don Worth of Marin County.

    This is my all time pick for a succulent or rock garden. Everyone should have one or two or many.  They do well in containers. It is hardy to at least the mid 20s. It is the best succulent performer in my garden.  You may have to bait for snails.
