Echeveria 'Blue Heron'


Echeveria 'Blue Heron' is an exceptionally unique succulent featuring richly hued, ombre rosettes, ranging from a powdery blue at the center to a warm coral along the periphery. Each of the leaves – which are thinner than those of many Echeveria varieties – cups slightly towards the center, giving the rosette a demurely compact appearance. A thick coating of farina further lends ‘Blue Heron’ an air of softness, but take care not to mar this coating with the oils from your fingerprints!

Bright light and cooler temperatures will appropriately ‘stress’ this plant into its richest coloration, so be sure to place ‘Blue Heron’ in a very well lit location. Beyond this requirement, its care is relatively simple – avoiding excess moisture is the ticket to a healthy, happy plant. To attain this goal, be sure to utilize a very porous soil within a well-draining pot, ensure ample airflow around the rosettes, and water thoroughly but infrequently.  Furthermore, take care not to pour water directly into the rosette, as this can predispose the plant to rot.

During the winter months, be sure to shield ‘Blue Heron’ from frost, which could permanently scar the stunning leaves.

    Plant Size & Appearance
    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!
