Echeveria lilacina - Ghost Echeveria


Not quite ready


Product Details


Ghost Echeveria (E. lilacina) (Kimnach & Moran): A favorite for its open rosette shape and distinctive lilac grey coloration. Its native habitats in Mexico are sheer cliff faces that get very little water. Despite extreme heat and drought, it can grow into a 7.0" wide, solitary rosette in these inhospitable conditions.

The leaves of this low, open rosette are spoon-shaped and widen near the tips. A thick, powdery coating of farina give the leaves a porcelain-like appearance. Early each spring, a rosette can produce 6.0" tall bloom stalk from which hang delicate, pale pink flowers that beautifully complement the lilac rosette.

Ghost Echeveria is a dependable grower, either in-ground or potted. If growing indoors, place it near a sunny window to maintain a compact rosette shape. It can tolerate extended drought and light frosts, but be sure it has excellent drainage and protection from heavy rains. Though they are reluctant to produce new offsets, they re-grow readily through leaf propagation.
