Succulent

*We no longer grow this item, but feel free to peruse the information.

Echeveria nodulosa Succulent is a variegated variety with gray-green leaves and red streaks around the edges and in the middle. Originating in Mexico, this Echeveria, like most succulents, likes it warm. The yellow blooms sit atop long stems in the mid-summer and have bracts that are similarly colored like the mother plant. Like Hens and chicks, offsets surround the main rosette.

Succulents tend to be drought tolerant and prefer poor soil conditions that drain very well. Some varieties can take a light freeze.  Try succulents in a rock garden or in a succulent wall.  Some even do well in a terrarium.
