This mossed basket of various succulents failed to really gel over summer, no doubt from a bad habit of sticking in a hodge-podge of succulents that break off from plants in the garden and need a home to root in. So when I spotted these echeverias at a nursery last week, I reworked the basket to showcase these stunners.
Echeveria elegans giving off suitable chrysanthemum vibes for fall (without the dumpiness of show-bench mums, I might add). I should have been more careful in handling this one judging by the blemishing to the powdery veneer of its leaves.
It was also the first time I’ve seen Senecio anteuphorbium for sale locally, which Dustin Gimbel identified when I blogged about this senecio’s inclusion in a local living fence. It reminds me of a spineless ocotillo.
