Echeveria 'Dark Vader'

$ 8.00
Size: 2"

Stepping out of the ordinary into the realm of the extraordinary, Echeveria 'Dark Vader' is a captivating succulent that hails from the heart of cultivated imagination. With its deep, almost mystical shades of purple to black leaves, this plant is a true standout in any succulent collection. The leaves are thick, fleshy, and form a tight rosette that seems to capture the essence of the night sky.

Echeveria 'Dark Vader' reaches a modest size of about 4 to 5 inches in both height and width, making it a perfect choice for small spaces in need of a dramatic touch. The edges of the leaves sometimes highlight a contrasting color, such as a vivid red or pink, adding to its mysterious allure. This plant is particularly striking when positioned in a setting that allows for the sunlight to illuminate its dark foliage, revealing hidden tones and enhancing its overall presence.

In spring to early summer, 'Dark Vader' further surprises with the emergence of bright coral to red flowers, offering a stark and beautiful contrast against its dark foliage. These flowers are borne on tall stalks that rise above the rosette, attracting pollinators and admirers alike. Perfect for rock gardens, terrariums, or as a unique specimen in a succulent arrangement, Echeveria 'Dark Vader' promises to be a conversation starter.

Despite its darkly dramatic appearance, Echeveria 'Dark Vader' is relatively easy to care for, requiring minimal water and thriving in well-draining soil. It embodies the perfect blend of otherworldly beauty and earthly resilience, making it a must-have for collectors and enthusiasts seeking to add a touch of the enigmatic to their plant collection.


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!
