Echeveria ‘Canadian’




Echeveria ‘Canadian’: A frosty blue rosette with a thick, powdery coating of epicuticular wax. It is an easy grower and tolerates full sun. Moderate stress from direct sun or drought can induce a light pink blush at the leaf edges.

Echeveria need bright sunlight to maintain their colors and compact rosette form. They will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light.

Like most succulents, they need great drainage and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.
