Echeveria 'Ruffles'

Size: 6"

The impressively large rosettes of Echeveria 'Ruffles' can grow to the size of a dinner plate – but that is not the only stunning characteristic of this variety! As its name suggests, the top edges of each large leaf feature a distinct, highly undulating pattern, leading the plant to resemble a frilly bow atop a wrapped gift! The newest growth will often be a powdery seafoam green, with more mature growth ‘blushing’ to rich shades of mauve, highlighted by hot pink margins. Due to its sheer size, ‘Ruffles’ makes an excellent specimen plant, either in a container or in a temperate rock garden.

Bright light is especially important for ‘Ruffles,’ both to encourage its deepest coloration and to support its ample growth. Beyond this, the keys to success with this variety include ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface, a porous soil mixture, a well-draining pot, and a thorough but infrequent watering routine. A native to Mexico and Central America, this variety cannot tolerate freezing temperatures, so be sure to protect it from frost during the winter months.

During the active growing season, expect ‘Ruffles’ to send up stalks of red or orange flowers, which are known to attract hummingbirds.

      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!
