19 NEW Echeverias At Succulent Market
by Lynn KirkDec 13, 2021
What’s the latest and greatest among echeverias? Well, a three-generation grower of succulent plants has the answer — actually, 19 of them! Succulent Market has expanded its collection of echeverias so that you can expand yours, whether you’re a serious collector or novice gardener. In fact, Succulent Market now features more than 65 echeveria species within the stonecrop’s family of plants!
So, what are the 19 NEW echeverias @ Succulent Market?
1. Echeveria Aurora. The Aurora hints at mint-green foliage that is glaucous, meaning it’s covered with a waxy greyish-blue coating that draws your eye time and again.
2. Echeveria Blue Minima. Its name suits since the Blue Minima’s small rosettes are blue-green clusters. They edge themselves in pink when stressed in a good way. Better yet, spring brings bell-shaped yellow flowers that complement the leaves’ blue hues.
3. Echeveria Costa. This ornamental’s rosette form may be typical, but its size is not. The Costa tends to grow larger and wider than its kin, which gives you a bigger chance to enjoy its beauty! The Costa’s fleshy foliage presents silver-greens with yellow undertones.
4. Echeveria Early Sunrise. Just like the day’s sunrise is tipped in reds, so is the Echeveria Early Sunrise. Pink-orange blooms add to its value, as does its prolific tendencies.
5. Echeveria Machete. The Machete’s origin is unknown; its hybridizer is unknown; and its parent plants are unknown. Equally odd is that the Machete’s rosettes, which are a series of upright leaves, resemble (you guessed it!) blades of upright machetes.
6. Echeveria Madiba. Here’s a different echeveria hue! The Madiba’s foliage is an apricot green. And when happily stressed, these leaves seem to blush in hearty pinks.
7. Echeveria Marron. Think “maroon” when you see Marron. This plant’s brown-purplish foliage is not only frosty; it rings around a tightly formed central rosette.
8. Echeveria Nodulosa. Its other moniker says it all: “Painted Echeveria.” An olive-green foliage stroked with vivid-red markings make it visually fascinating. Full maroon also colors the underside of each leaf, making it all-and-all a real showstopper!
9. Echeveria Orpet. Heavenly grey-blue, plush foliage of the Orpet is edged with a stand-out pink that tends to increase as temperatures decrease. Gorgeous and a bit rare!
10. Echeveria Punnita. This hybrid’s distinctive frosty-greens transform to coral-reds along its edges and tips.
11. Echeveria Ramilette. Yellow-tangerine flowers atop long spikey stems are just plain gorgeous! They reach upward and outward from among the Ramilette’s frosty, fleshy leaves.
12. Echeveria Red Skye. This low-growing ornamental features a central rosette that changes colors like sunsets.
13. Echeveria Rejoice. This one earns its name because you just want to REJOICE when you spot its loose rosette sporting bronzy to blue-green hues.
14. Echeveria Rob Royce. Apricot-bronze pastels of its leaves cause Rob Royce to be a show-off among Echeverias.
15. Echeveria Salsa Verde. As its name suggests, Salsa Verde conjures up thoughts of a spicy salsa complete with red tomato bits and jalapeños.
16. Echeveria Spark. Add some spark to your collection with this one! A fiery glow resembling red-hot embers colors up each spike’s end.
17. Echeveria Summer. In the right conditions, foliage can turn a deep purple . . . . just like the long-lasting dusks of summer.
Other than aesthetics, why else would there be 19 NEW echeverias @ Succulent Market?
- COLORS. Echeverias’ rainbow of colors runs the gamut, from soft pastels to deep hues and traditional grey-greens to burgundy-purples. Perhaps the best echeveria succulents are those that boast multi-coloring on the same plant — whether an accent color on the leaf tips, dazzling streaks, or duo-toned hues throughout.
- FORMS: Echeverias deliver rose-like forms without nasty thorns. That makes them ideal for perennial garden groundcovers, rock garden arrangements, container accents, and gotta-have potted plants.
- TEXTURES. As a succulent, echeverias’ leaves store water, which makes them appear fleshy and plushy. While some leaf textures are waxy and smooth, others are velvety. Also, while some foliage terminates with pointy points, others exhibit rounded or crinkled edging.
- SIZES. Once again, the echeverias’ range of options adds to their value and potential uses. An echeveria’s rosettes can range from a teeny half inch to a full 20 inches at maturity!
- HARDINESS. Best of all, both indoors and outdoors, echeverias are easy-care plants with just basic requirements for regular sunshine and minimal watering. They’re also prune-free, unless they’ve grown leggy, and cold hardy to zones 9 and 10.
- CHILD-AND-PET FRIENDLY. Yea for families! Echeverias typically are safe for all the household. Though they have no toxic compounds, it’s still best to set them out of reach (for the sake of the plant!).
