Echeverias can be considered as the most attractive of all succulents, highly valued by collectors for their amazing colours and variation. Their rosettes range in size from 2cm to 50cm in diameter. They generally flower in the warmer months with colours ranging from white to orange to pink to red. Echeverias can require a little more attention and care than most succulents and perform their best when in full sun.
