Echeveria elegans is a popular succulent that forms compact rosettes of fleshy, spoon-shaped, and pale bluish-green leaves. It is a variable species with several forms that have only minor differences in size and shape of leaves and color of flowers. Plants grown in bright sunlight can take on a lovely pink blush. Leaves are up to 2.6 inches (6 cm) long and up to 0.8 inches (2 cm) wide. It offsets freely and forms a dense carpet of rosettes over time. From late winter to mid-summer, it sends up slender, pinkish stems, up to 1 foot (30 cm) tall, which bear pinkish-red flowers tipped with yellow. The specific epithet “elegans” derives from a Latin word meaning “elegant” and refers to its elegant appearance.
