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 a 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.
