“Mexican Snowball”

Echeveria elegans Mexican Snowball

One of my very favorite ground-covering succulents! As its name indicates, “Mexican Snowball” bears elegant silvery blue rosettes to 6” tall and 8” across. Happily forming lots of offsets to spread to 16” across in no time, it makes an excellent small-scale groundcover or edger. Plant in multiples to cover more area, grows faster in part sun. Bonus: long lasting showy bright pink 8” arched stems display pink and yellow lantern-like blooms in Summer. Great in containers. Well-drained soil. EASY! Deer resistant. Hardy to 25° F.
