This Echeveria succulent has grown in my “under the sea” planter on my backyard patio for five years now. It is perfect in my theme planter because it resembles the colorful underwater sea life found in tropical dive sites. It has lettuce type edges on the tips of the leaves and boasts colors of blue, green, reddish pink and yellow hues. Blue Curls spans out to 10 inches wide, categorized as drought tolerant, very hardy to cold temperatures (25 degrees Farenheit) and shows off a cluster of orange-pink bell-shaped flowers on a thin dainty stem about 18 inches tall. I have a long list of favorite plants and this Echeveria “Blue Curls” is no exception.
