The genus Echeveria was named after Mexican botanical artist Atanasio Echeverría y Godoy. In fact, Echeveria Varieties are some of the most popular types of rose-shaped succulents. Offered in a variety of shapes, colors, sizes, and textures. In fact, there are over 180 species that have been crossed to make new cultivars. Consequently, there are well over a thousand cultivars. Additionally, they make interesting additions to succulent gardens, containers, terrariums, and rock gardens. Furthermore, they are perfect for wedding bouquets and wedding cakes. Moreover, these frost-tender succulents are lovely houseplants in cold-winter regions.
Most echeveria hybrids are either cabbage-like, ruffled, crinkly or bumpy. It’s hard to resist Echeverias. Especially for their jewel-tone leaves and brilliant flower spikes. Their stunning rosette shape, plump leaves, and large variety of colors give them a striking resemblance to flowers. Therefore, they are easy to decorate with. In addition, their unique appearance and low maintenance needs have made Echeverias widely popular. Some popular favorites are Echeveria Lola, Echeveria Perle Von Nurnberg, and Echeveria Topsy Turvey. Below are some additional Echeveria varieties.
