Echeveria secunda

Echeveria secunda
This ice blue succulent from South America surrounded here by the orange fallen leaves of an ornamental Prunus is one of the hardiest and most reliable to grow. Unlike other larger Echeveria it rarely suffers from fungal problems which cause the leaves to rot or from insect pests such as aphids or mealy bug. It forms a dense tight mat making it ideal for mass planting or for use as an edging plant along garden beds or in low flat pots by itself or surrounding larger specimens of a darker colour.
2017 update: I have limited stock available.
