A Sweet Discovery

I can get easily distracted by all the big things in the gardens. What needs to be done seasonally, what needs to be changed visually, what is not doing well culturally. Sometimes it is easy to overlook the small things, like this sweet little succulent that has been quietly growing in a container by the pool for a number of years. I have never really noticed it before, most likely because the pot is jammed full of stuff and I am usually walking by at a quick pace on my way elsewhere. Maybe I need to take some cuttings and spread it around a bit. It is too charming to go unnoticed!

That succulent almost looks fake. I'd get more going of that that's for sure. It's sweet and interesting.

Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

I love the veining of red throughout this plant...it seems it does need a few more prominent places to be noticed...

It is an Echeveria nodulosa. Cute things. Quite unlike most typical Echeverias you see in gardens.

I think it is lovely. Yes, you need to spread it around some more. It would be stunning in a "large" group.
Thanks for indentifying it Kaveh.
