Echeveria 'Blue Prince' features dark, blue-grey leaves that form the perfect rosette shape. This succulent is so gorgeous in person, and it only gets better when exposed to bright light – an adequate amount of “sun stress” can even encourage ‘Blue Prince’s rosettes to blush pink! Each rosette can grow up to six inches wide, making it a great focal point in a potted succulent arrangement.
Echeveria 'Blue Prince' needs plenty of bright sunlight to maintain its color and avoid etiolating, or stretching. Combined with ample airflow, porous soil with great drainage, and thorough watering only when the soil is completely dry, this unique succulent is likely to thrive as part of your collection – and will even send up stalks of red or pink blooms to reward your efforts! Care must also be taken to water at soil level, rather than by pouring water directly over the rosette, as droplets left sitting between the leaves can predispose the plant to rot.
Hardy only to Zone 9, be sure to protect these fleshy leaves from extreme temperatures like severe heat and frost, to avoid sunburn or scarring.

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.
Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
