Pachyveria scheideckeri


Numerous layers of cupped, gently pointed leaves form the highly structural rosettes of Pachyveria scheideckeri,which boast a range of hues from orangey coral to soft pink to hazy blue. A rather variable hybrid, the rosettes can range from up to 6 inches wide to quite petite, some remaining close to the surface of the soil with others reaching skyward on stems up to several inches long. Taken as a whole, the resulting mass of color and texture can fill a sunny corner in your home, or serve as a ground-covering element in a temperate rock garden.

Bright light will ensure the very best coloration and growth from Pachyveria scheideckeri,making a western or southern exposure ideal for this sun-loving plant. The biggest threat to the success of this variety is overwatering, which can be avoided by employing a thorough yet infrequent watering routine, allowing the soil to dry completely through in between drinks. A porous soil mixture within a well-draining pot will provide additional insurance against dampness, as will ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface.

Hardy only to Zone 10, be sure to shield Pachyveria scheideckerifrom frost – and the warmer days of spring will reveal dainty yellow blooms rising above the rosettes.
