Echeveria - Black Prince
This lovely darkly burgundy-green coloured Echeveria is highly prized by collectors for its unusual colour. Enjoys growing in a warm sunny location by the window indoors or outdoors. Produces dark stems of beautiful scarlet red flowers near the end of summer. Grows up to 22cm in diameter. Rarely produces offsets, but more plants can be produced from the leaves on the flowering stocks. Looks best paired in a pot with a light green coloured plant or with its hybrid cousin "Black Knight".
Echeveria runyonii - Topsy Turvy
A beautiful almost white Echeveria with leaves which curl under. Enjoys growing indoors in full sun or outdoors in warm weather, but with partial shade. Prefers well drained soil. Produces stems of beautiful orange-yellow flowers in mid-summer. Grows up to 30cm in diameter. Produces offshoots from main stem in abundance. When transplanting avoid handling leaves too much as they can bruise and do not like their white protective leaf covering removed. Best paired with dark green plants for a stunning look.
Echeveria - The Farmer's Wife
A sturdy lime-green coloured Echerveria hybrid which is great for the beginner cacti grower. Enjoys the full sun in indoor or outdoor weather. Requires watering every few days in the summer as it likes moist well drained soil. Produces a stem of red-yellow flowers in summer. Grows up to 30cm in diameter. Produces 5-7 offshoots from main stem every year. Make sure plant has a large container to grow in. Can be paired with most Echeveria types, but looks best on its own in a decorative container.
Echeveria - Metallica
Considered an unusual hybrid with it's broad pinkish-bluish leaves that turn to green over time as the plant grows. Enjoys warm weather, but is more of a shade lover. Soil should be kept well drained. Will produce stems of pink-yellow flowers up to twice a year, if kept in a green house during the winter. Grows up to 22cm in diameter. Rarely produces offsets, but more plants can be produced from the leaves on the flowering stocks. Does not like its white protective leaf covering touched during transplanting.
Looks best paired with dark or light green plants or with an Echeveria of a similar hue such as "Afterglow" or "Perle von Nurnberg".
Haworthia - cooperi var. pilifera
This lovely green "jewel" originating in South Africa is a great choice for someone who is looking for a spreading Succulent for a large container or indoor rock garden. Enjoys warm weather, but prefers the shade of a decorative volcanic rock and well drained soil. Should be watered regularly in summer. Produces very long thin stems with small pink-white flowers. One offset can grow up to 12cm in diameter. It is grown mainly from offsets, but can be grown from seed.
Looks best paired with other rock garden plants such as Aloes and Agaves, but should be given some distance from these plants so it can spread.
