A hybrid succulent variety named for the famed British botanical artist and author, ‘Vera Higgins’ sports fleshy leaves in shades of red, coral, or even bronze, which whorl around the stem before culminating in rosettes at the tip. The color of the 1- inch long leaves will deepen in stronger sunlight or cooler (but not freezing!) temperatures, and begin reverting to a silvery green in darker conditions. Growing to about 8-10 inches tall, the stems will begin to drape over the edges of the pot, making for a particularly eye-catching arrangement.
To maintain the distinctive color of ‘Vera Higgins,’ ensure that your plant receives bright light with adequate airflow. Well-draining soil mix is a must to avoid rot, and plants should be watered when the soil feels dry to the touch or when the leaves begin to show signs of wrinkling.
Hardy to zone 10a, ‘Vera Higgins’ tendency to offset readily makes it a great perennial addition to gardens beds in warmer climates, but care must be taken to avoid exposure to frost. In the right conditions, this succulent will bloom with yellow flowers in the spring and summer months.

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!
