Small Fuzzy Leaves with Pointed tips, Alternating at 90 Degrees

(Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada)

Sort of like a low lying shrub (it's about 4 or 5 inches tall). Spindly, woody stems. Leaves are quite dark green, fuzzy and coming to a point at the ends.

Thanks, Jackie!

Thanks, Jackie! Yes, now that I have that name to search with, it is clear that this is exactly what it is! I was absolutely certain it wasn't an echeveria... Mystery solved!

This is not an Echeveria it is Crassula mesembryanthemoides.

A Shrubby Echeveria
by: Jacki

Not all Echeveria are rosette forming. Some, like this one, form a little woody shrublike plant, with alternating leaves quite unlike the other types.

This is Echeveria pulvinata, which I have grown but I have no pictures of. It's one of the parents of a couple of other similarly fuzzy types like Echeveria set-oliver, which you can see here.

Like all Echeveria, they have the same care requirements.
