Echeveria elegans belongs to the genus Echeveria, of the Crassulaceae family, and is made up of almost 400 species of succulent plants native to the area between Mexico and northern Brazil. Its name is a tribute to the Mexican botanist Atanasio Echevarría (18th century).

It is commonly known by the names of Rosa de alabastro, Echeveria or Echeverio.

They are small stemless succulent plants that form rosettes of about 8 cm in diameter. The fleshy leaves are blue with a white margin. They produce pink stems about 15-20 cm high from which pink and yellow bell-shaped flowers emerge. They flower from late winter to late spring.

They can be used to cover small areas, in rockeries and in pots. They are suitable for coastal gardens and for large cities because of their tolerance to pollution. It should be noted that they are slow growing.

This plant will do best in semi-shade exposure as intense sun can burn the leaves. It can withstand occasional frosts down to -4ºC.

Soil is ideally a mixture of 1/3 sand and 2/3 leaf mulch although they can thrive in poorer soils.

It is a very drought resistant plant so watering should be moderate, waiting for the soil to dry out well before watering again. In winter reduce watering to a minimum.

It is a plant that does not need pruning or fertilizers.

They are very resistant to pests and diseases but do not like excess humidity.

To propagate them it is best to make leaf cuttings or to separate the offshoots that the plant itself produces by means of stolons.
