Echeveria purpusorum
Echeveria purpusorumTypical Echeveria flowers
Echeverias are very common in cultivation, grown in particular for their attractive rosettes of leaves which vary considerably from species to species. E. purpusorum has dark, hard leaves, whereas some other species have softer and/or paler leaves. Many collectors specialise in them, amassing beautiful collections of the different species and cultivars. Most Echeveria flowers are generally similar (those pictured are from an unidentified species and are typical only), though they do vary in size, stem length and colour though they are always based on orange and/or yellow.
