Help identifying my lovely succulent

by Whitney



I've had a succulent for quite some time and it's a beauty but I've never been able to identify it! I think it's an echevaria but I could be wrong.

It's bright green, rosette shape, and fleshy and pointy leaves. It doesn't have a stem I don't think, rather a root ball. It's never bloomed and it was bought in southern England though not very common as I've never seen another one!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Yes, it's an Echeveria
by: Jacki

It might be hard to get a plant like this to bloom in a climate that isn't hot and dry. It looks to me to be Echeveria agavoides. Sometimes these plants get red edges, but that is dependent on being grown in a bright situation.

Echeveria agavoides
by: Julia in Los Angeles

I have a plant like this. It's an Echeveria agavoides. Not all develop red edges; depends upon variety. Slow grower. Mine started to flourish once I moved it to a sheltered location outside. New growth is very close to mother rosette, looking like a more complex single rosette, which is beautiful. Some echeverias can get leggy. My E. agavoides has not; it stays low. Keep out of intense sun as this will cause leaves to burn. I love it.
