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 nodulosa

A branching species that forms multiple rosettes 1–2 ft. high and 2–3 ft. wide. The pointed, concave leaves are ribbed on the underside and brightly marked with red on the margins and midleaf. Light yellow summer flowers are also marked with red. Best in partial shade in hot summer areas.
