Echeveria are popular low growing ornamental garden plants. Although they are fairly drought tolerant, they will become more spectacular with regular deep watering and fertilising. The hybrids tend to be less tolerant of frost and shade. In temperate climates, most species will lose their lower leaves in winter and become ‘leggy’ and less attractive. Echeveria are also popular pot plants and appear in most succulent collections. ‘Silver Prince’ are stunning and have super unique variegation. With stress the tips will become more purple.
