    Echeveria are becoming far easier to find now and as I'm building up a fair collection I thought that I would start a thread where we can all show off our Echeveria.

    I'll start it off with my E.pulvinata which is in bloom again after its somewhat drastic chop!

    It is a reliable self seeder.................

    It is unusual in that it has a woody branching growth habit. This is what it looked like before the big chop...................

      I've made it into a Sticky Thread, longk, to make it easier to find.

        I like the E Perle von Nurnberg best because of the striking colour.

          My echeveria is a prolifica, I think - anyway it is a toughie and lives out on the patio all the year round. It has pretty yellow flowers in the spring. It's a nice reminder of my parents house in the Languedoc - the original plant was given to them by a neighbour. I've passed on cuttings from this one to many friends, too.

          The mother-of-pearl plant to the right (graptopetalum paraguayense) was also a cutting from the Languedoc originally and again has survived outside for many years. Behind them is another succulent - a cutting this time from a local neighbour. Not sure what that one is. It can be seen more clearly in the pic below.

            Mine has yet to bloom.
            If you want great foliage colour it is hard to beat E.cante (thanks Pete!)...............
            [​IMG]Echeveria cante by longk48, on Flickr

            It is covered in a ghostly bloom (powder) which gives it that great colour. The flowers are nice too................
            [​IMG]Echeveria cante by longk48, on Flickr

            With one or two exceptions all mine are either outdoors in a sheltered spot or in an unheated greenhouse over the winter. E.agavoides seems to be the hardiest by far for me. A cold spell seems to make the summer bloomers flower better - here is E.pullidonis which was exposed to quite harsh cold last winter...............
            [​IMG]Echeveria pulidonis by longk48, on Flickr

            As you can see the foliage took a kicking but boy did that one rosette flower!

              My, E. cante is yet to flower, it just keeps making more rosettes, 18ins across now but not one rosette has flowered.
              Picture taken with a flash so the colours are a bit poor.

                  I have several Echeverias. Hers's E. pullidonis. It is only small at the moment but had few flowers this year ...

                    Whereas mine blooms but is very slow when it comes to making new rosettes!

                    That is one thing that I am learning about quite a few Echeveria - give them bigger pots and they can get huge.

                    That is a nice species and one of the hardier ones too. I can see E.purpurosum behind it.

                    @Tetters - I wish that my E.secunda would survive outdoors!

                      Thanks for naming that one for me @longk :) It flowered this year but I didn't get around to taking any photos of it.

                        Really enjoying everyone's pix! And yes I think you are right about them flowering more vigorously after a really cold spell @longk - with my prolifica I notice that the pink tinge on the older leaves becomes more vigorous at that point, too.

                          upload_2017-11-29_10-49-20.jpeg So that`s what it`s called. It bloomed really well over a long period, but I wasn`t too sure how hardy it would be. First effort - can you tell? I`ve propagated it, and am hoping to have a much larger display next year.

                            Just a note... my E. secunda ;) was attacked by vine weevil :sad:, which is the main reason it had to be propagated a bit quick smart.

                              My E.agavoides did something strange. Perfectly happy outdoors all winter in August/September leaves were rotting but only on the side where offsets were forming. It is almost as if they were making room for the offsets to grow into.............
