A stunning variety created by renowned succulent hybridizer Dick Wright, Echeveria 'Ramillette' features fleshy apple green leaves with red tips and margins, which makes for a perfectly contrasting, nearly symmetrical looking rosette. While cool temperatures can ‘stress’ the leaves into even deeper shades of red and green, it is important to note that these plants are only hardy to Zone 9, and need to be protected from frost. With a dense clumping habit, the 4-inch wide rosettes of ‘Ramillette’ make the perfect addition to both planters and rock gardens.
Like many Echeveria, 'Ramillette' requires bright light to avoid etiolating, or stretching, as well as ample airflow to ward off pests and rot. Porous soil with adequate drainage will keep ‘Ramillette’s roots happy, but be careful to avoid overwatering and never pour water directly into the rosette. The ‘soak and dry’ method, making sure to water until the excess flows from the bottom of the pot, will prove more than sufficient.
When provided with adequate light and growing conditions, ‘Ramillette’ will reward you with yellowish-orange blooms in early spring, which will emerge above the rosette on long flower stalks.

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!
