Echeveria 'Blue Swan'

Size

The powdery, pastel blue leaves of Echeveria ‘Blue Swan’ form tight rosettes that can reach up to several inches in diameter. The leaves, which are largely flattened towards the top margin, cup slightly towards the center of each rosette, lending this succulent a compact appearance. A thick coating of farina is responsible for the plant’s soft, almost ethereal appearance – though care must be taken not to mar this layer with the oils from your fingerprints!

Like all uniquely hued Echeveria, ‘Blue Swan’ requires bright light to retain both its coloration and its compact growth form – in fact, the coating of farina is what allows the plant to withstand even direct sunlight without risk of sunburn! The second key requirement for this variety is to avoid overwatering, which can predispose ‘Blue Swan’ to rot and pests. To accomplish this, be sure to provide a porous soil mixture within a well-draining pot, as well as ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface. Water thoroughly but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry completely in between waterings, and do not pour the water directly overtop of the rosettes themselves.

During the cold winter months, shield ‘Blue Sky’s fleshy leaves from frosty temperatures, to avoid permanent damage.
