Sedeveria 'Blue Elf' is a hybrid between Sedum and Echeveria. The chubby leaves of this rosette-shaped succulent emerge minty green, before deepening to a soft blue tone with pink tips. A thick coating of farina creates the powdery appearance of this succulent – but take care, as this layer can easily be wiped away by the oils in your fingerprints! Further, the pink coloration on the tips of the leaves can be darkened to a warm magenta through moderate amounts of stress, including increased sun exposure and cooler (but not freezing) temperatures. At less than 3 inches tall and wide, this plant makes a great addition to the front of succulent arrangements or rock gardens, though its ready willingness to produce offsets means that it can also hold its own as a specimen plant!
To maintain its coloration and tight rosette shape, this variety prefers bright light. Excellent airflow around the leaves, along with porous soil in a well-draining pot, will help protect the plant from rot or pests, as will avoiding pouring water directly into the rosette. Water thoroughly but infrequently, in keeping with the ‘soak and dry’ method preferred by many succulents.
With the right growing conditions, ‘Blue Elf’ will send up stalks of bright yellow flowers up to several times each year, earning it the nickname of ‘Happy Plant’!

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!
