A newer hybrid variety, Echeveria ‘Blue Frills’ sports powdery, aqua blue leaves. Unlike most other blue-toned succulents, however, these leaves each feature a slight wave along the upper margins, making the rosettes appear to be covered in frilly ruffles – just as its name suggests! The large rosettes can each reach several inches in diameter, making this variety a show-stopping standalone specimen, or a vibrant ‘filler’ component to any succulent arrangement.
In order to retain its coloration, and to avoid leggy stems, ‘Blue Frills’ requires a very sunny location. Beyond this, however, it is a rather low maintenance succulent, asking only for protection from excess moisture in order to thrive. To achieve this, be sure to utilize a porous soil in a well-draining pot, and to water thoroughly only once the soil has had the chance to completely dry through. Ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface, and never pouring water directly into the rosettes, will go the rest of the way towards a happy, healthy plant.
During the winter months, take care to shield ‘Blue Frills’s fleshy leaves from freezing temperatures. As the weather begins to warm in the spring and summer months, bell shaped, orange blooms will emerge above the rosettes, adding to this variety’s unique and festive effect.

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!
