Echeveria Shaviana Summary

Echeveria Shaviana Physical Characteristics

This plant is characterized by a lack of stem and its leaves forming dense rosettes, and they tend to offset at the base, which is its way of reproduction. The spoon-shaped leaves are smooth, silver-grey, and with pink margins.

When exposed to intense light, leaf margins curve inward, crease, and have a pinkish margin. The leaves are thin and delicate, almost appearing like petals, which makes the plant appear different from the other species in the genus. Shaviana’s uniqueness is because Echeverias tend to have thick leaves

Also, the succulent has a short 5cm long stem that doesn’t branch. Some plants have no stems at all. The succulent flowers bloom in summer from a raceme. Its flowers are pink outside and yellow inside. Its flowers are all on one side of the inflorescence and nodding.
