Echeveria elegans
“Mexican Snowball”

My favorite ground-covering succulent , “Mexican Snowball” bears elegant silvery blue rosettes to 4” tall and 5” across. Happily forms lots of offsets to form a low, 16” across, texturiffic carpet for a small area. I really like how it will do this in both full sun and shade. Bonus: long-lasting showy bright pink 8” arched stems display pink and yellow lantern-like blooms in Summer. Great in containers. Fertile, well-drained soil. EASY! Deer resistant. Hardy to 25° F.
