“Echeveria” Genus

Echeveria Genus Image

This genus is characterized by its almost perfectly formed rosettes. The plants are mostly low-growing succulents. There are approximately 150 species in this genus, a native of Texas, the United States, and Argentina. Most of the plants in this genus are also referred to as hens and chicks because they produce offsets copiously. The rosettes look like a hen’s plumage and therefore the mother plant looks like a mother hen surrounded by chicks which are offsets with their smaller rosettes.

Their leaves are typically broad and fleshy. They are covered with wax, protecting them from water loss occasioned by the elements, especially direct sunlight. Exposure to intense, direct sunlight causes the plants to develop a red edge. Their symmetrical rosettes are a great attraction to plant collectors. Also, their flowers cluster above the leaves from flower stalks that may grow from the center or rosettes or other parts of the rosette.
