Created by famed succulent hybridizer Dick Wright in 1980, Echeveria 'Lola' is a unique “rosebud” shaped succulent with green leaves featuring a hint of lavender, pink, and even light blue, enhanced by a thick layer of almost pearlescent farina – which means extra care must be taken not to mar the leaves with the oils from our fingerprints! As if this otherworldly look wasn’t enough, gorgeous coral hued, bell shaped blooms will grace delicate flower stalks in the early spring months, after the plant emerges from winter dormancy.
Echeveria 'Lola' needs filtered to bright light with ample airflow, to help avoid pests or other ills. Porous soil with great drainage, and thorough watering only when the soil is completely dry, will help avoid rot, as will ensuring that water does not become trapped between the plant’s fleshy leaves. The rosettes can grow up to 6 inches tall, though if the woody stems become too lanky, they can be cut and allowed to form a callous, before repotting into a new pot or arrangement.
Hardy to zone 9, these plants can survive a very light frost, but would prefer to be kept in warmer temperatures – after all, this plant’s family, Crassulaceae, is native to Mexico and Central America!

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!
