Happy Blooms


Echeveria are such sweet little plants. They are very subtle most of the time and require little attention in the garden, also adding to their demure reputation. However when these soft colored 'hens and chicks' bloom, it is like they are waving at us, saying a sweet hello. I always smile when I see them reaching out to greet the world.

Mine are blooming too and putting on a lovely show, when much else is sulking in the heat and drought.

The plant shoots out two slender stalks with flowers at the top. Cute!.... and I think this plant is good at storing water just in case we forget to hose them...

Cheers,

I am in love with these succulents. I did not know that they actually blooomed! I have a big plan for them in the future. Thank you for sharing.

Mine bloomed about a month ago. Do you know if they bloom only once a year? I don't know anything about succulants. -Jackie

Ellie Mae, I think they only bloom once a year, but their blooms last a long time.
