Echeveria elegans are succulents that originated in the rocky and mountainous regions of Mexico and other parts of tropical South America.
They grow well and happily in the United Kingdom, in either garden or container.
Echeveria elegans are from the family Crassulaceae and are sometimes know as ‘fat plants’ after the word crassus, meaning thick or fat. The leaves are adapted to store water which means the plants require little attention for most of the year.
Being evergreen and having a long-lasting display of interesting flowers, much loved by bees, they make a relatively low maintenance contribution to the environment, whilst being very attractive for most of the year. Common Names
