ECHEVERIA

Mexican natives that form rosettes of fleshy green or gray-green leaves, often marked with deeper colors. Long, slender, sometimes branched clusters of bell-shaped, nodding flowers, usually pink, red, or yellow. Good in rock gardens. Those that grow in desert zone 12 need cool spot, partial shade. Those suitable for low desert—Zone 13—need extra attention. Some types make good houseplants.

Echeveria agavoides

This echeveria's rosettes are 6–8 in. across. Stiff, fleshy, sharp-pointed leaves are smooth and bright green, marked deep reddish brown at tips and edges. Flower stalks reach 1 1/2 ft., bearing small red-and-yellow blooms.
