Painted Echeveria

Echeveria nodulosa

This stunning succulent may be hard to pronounce (some say ek-e-ve’-ri-a others say ech-e-ver’-i-a) but easy to grow. With its leaves of absinthe green with vivid red margins this waterwise succulent provides year-round interest. Hummingbirds love its coral pink and yellow flowers borne on two foot tall bracts. Thrives in dry, sandy soil. Slow growing.

  • What low temperature can this plant take?

  • Hello Bobbie,
    The grower claims it is hardy to 20°F to 30°F. To us this means you should protect at 30°F or below, even though it might be okay down to 20°F.

    Thank you,
    Cara
