    This noid Echeveria was the first to bloom this year. In the unheated greenhouse it had lots of stems until the cold blast in March and just this one stem was left.............

    It's a lot like E.purpurosum in all but colour..............

        Echeverias are lovely but that is pretty much the standard growth form and flowering habit Gail. There are subtle differences in the flower shape, leaf shape and growth habit amongst the many species, hybrids and cultivars.

        A couple more in bloom;
        Echeveria pulidonis is one of the few pure yellow flowering species...........

          Plenty more to come. I have spring, summer and winter blooming species and hybrids.

              Echeveria elegans.............
              [​IMG]Echeveria elegans by longk48, on Flickr

              It's a very hardy and floriferous species. This first one to bloom was just a small cutting that I started at the middle of April..............

                I lost the label for this one but I think that it's Echeveria setosa var. ciliata...............

                It's a very dense plant and as such it is surprisingly heavy..............

                  Longk, I have just a few echeverias .....latest is echeveria Zodiac. Yours are superb.:)
                  :)Do you have a favourite or two? Surreal Succulents is 8 miles or so from me and, esp with a discount code, I am looking forward to buying more plants. Black Prince?
                  Pulidonis looks tempting!!
                  Three or four different aeoniums too....latest is Phoenix Flame. Looks stunning but still pretty small right now.

                    E.cante and E.pulvinata. Both are budding up and will be on this thread in due course :biggrin:

                    They could be better but I'm trying to grow them with as little protection as possible.

                      IMG_3710.JPG Mine are in individual pots but I wonder if a scree would suit them longk? They survive pretty well outside down here over winter, kept very dry all the time though:)

                      Ok, not an echeveria but the foliage on this aeonium looks good right now and it has been flowering for some time......oops! Decapitated the flowers!!

                        But I do like the differing rosettes.

                          @pete - is that first one a big old chunker? I got one from Lidl last year which is just about to bloom and it looks like it has potential to be a gem of a plant long term.

                          These are not strictly Echeveria but they are so closely related that I'm going to add them. Graptopetalum rusbyii...........

                          Graptopetalum bellum..........

                          [​IMG]Graptopetalum bellum by longk48, on Flickr

                          Graptopetalum cross pollinate quite readily with Echeveria and produce lovely intergeneric hybrids.

                            Not sure which one you mean @longk .
                            I think the first pic is something like E. setosa, but might be wrong.

                            I used to grow Tacitus bellum for years, great little plant, I see it has now been renamed.:smile:
