The genus Echeveria is a large one, with about 150 species. Most are native to Mexico and Central America, but they have been widely cultivated around the world. They are succulents, meaning that they store water in their leaves and stems to help them through times of drought.
Echeveria plants come in a variety of colors, from shades of green to blues, purples, and reds. They range in size from just a few inches tall to more than a foot wide. The leaves are typically lance-shaped or spoon-shaped, and may be either smooth, wrinkled, or covered with tiny hairs.
Echeveria plants are easy to care for, and can be grown both indoors and outdoors. They thrive in bright sunlight but can also tolerate some shade. They need well-draining soil and should be watered regularly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.
Echeveria plants are popular for their beautiful colors and easy care requirements, making them a great choice for gardeners of all levels of experience.
