Landscape Value
Echeveria look similar to hardy Hens-and-Chicks, but plants are frost-tender and must be brought indoors for the winter. Spikes of unusual orange-pink flowers appear in late summer. Excellent in containers, gravel gardens or sunny rock gardens. Allow plants to get fairly dry between waterings. In winter these require a sunny window.
