With especially rounded and fleshy leaves, Echeveria 'Yamatoren' will sport pink margins when exposed to plenty of bright light – which can deepen to a bright red the more the plant is ‘stressed’ by the sun or cool temperatures. The rosettes are not overly full, instead appearing rather dainty as they provide exceptional contrast to any container or temperate rock garden in which they are featured!
Like most Echeveria, 'Yamatoren' will thrive in bright light, where it will not only achieve its best coloration but also maintain its most compact rosette form. Furthermore, this plant requires protection from overwatering, which can be accomplished by providing porous soil with great drainage, ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface, and thorough watering only when the soil is completely dry.
During the winter months, make sure you protect ‘Yamatoren’s thick leaves from frost – and as the weather warms it will reward your efforts by sending up stalks of tiny, bright yellow blooms!

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!
