Ech. shaviana

To 8"

Full Sun


Winner of the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit, Ech. shaviana is a very pretty member of the echeveria genus, with soft blue leaves that flush pink in bright sunlight and ruffle at the edges.

Like many succulents, Echeveria need bright sunlight to maintain their colors and compact rosette form. If they recieve too little sunlight, the plants will stretch and the colors will fade. They will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. Also known as "Mexican Hens & Chicks", Echeveria can produce new offsets or "chicks" around the base of the mother plant. These chicks can be left to form a tidy cluster or removed and transplanted. Additionally, Echeveria can be propagated from stem cuttings or from mature leaves.
