It looks like a E. harmsii, I think. I have one but it is pre-bloom, a baby still.

Hey Karyn,

VERY pretty, reminds me of the few times I've gotten to see blooms like these in person.

Hi Ltran,

Just in case you don't know, if you click on her pix, they'll get bigger, lots bigger & allow you their pleasure even more (big like your great Crown of Thorn Pix). If you already know this, pls. never mind.

I can't take any credit. The echeverias I grow get a few flower stalks at the most. DH got them in yesterday and knows that I like echeverias and brought it home. That's one of the smaller plants in a 6" pot. He said the ones in the 10" pots were really loaded with flowers but they already sold out. I might have him bring home a big one as they are available thru Nov. It's too bad that once they are bought they'll get chopped up and used in flower arrangements.

Howard it's mainly wholesale cut flowers but there's a fairly large plant dept and a floral supply dept as well.

I just bought one of these last night!!! I'd never seen them before this. The 8" pots were like 25$, mine is in a 6" pot for 12.99. Has lots & lots of blooms too. I bought one for my mil as well. Sooooo pretty! Is it bad that I'm already planning how to hack mine up? heh heh. Yeah, it's bad 8).

I'll wait till the blooms are done to do frankenstein experiments & have a few leaves drying for starts. If I get enough of them rooted, I plan to plant outside next year for some summer interest. The usual HD annual menu is just a wee bit ho hum.

It looks like a lot of these are coming from Bay City Flower Co./ Hana Bay Flowers in CA. They cost DH $3 for a 6" pot and $8 for a 10" (might actually be 8", not sure) by the case.

Looking at mine there's way more flower then foliage. Is that normal for this variety or are they intentionally grown this way for the market? All my others have nice rosettes with the occasional flower stalks, nothing like this one. Once the flowers are spent I think it's going to look kind of fugly.

yes, my thoughts exactly...which is why I was planning to hack mine up for a few dish gardens, once it finishes flowering.

As a filler plant the foliage, when kept compact & neat looks to be a welcome splash of color. I plan to follow the suggestion of cutting off the head & potting up.

Mine also only has one or 2 heads, mostly flower stalks like yours. It says they're easily propagated by leaf cuttings too, so I've got a few of those fuzzy lil fellers drying in a dish of gritty.

Only time will tell =)

Echeveria 'fasciculata'

Echeveria shaviana

Echeveria pulvinata

Echeveria elegans

Echeveria hybrid

Geoff,

I should mention that last pic is wonderful - the others are, too (my E. agavoides Lipstick' never flowered in the 7 years I had it, so thanks for that one). I didn't know they came in so many colours. I don't think you have a problem photographing them, unless it's which ones to snap.

I didn't realize there were so many beautiful echeveria flowers. I especially like the red ones. Now where's a pic of your echeveria eatin' tortoise?

Is that ol' Gopherus agassizii? He's quite the charming cropper, isn't he?

What an amazing tortoise. I think he is due a few succulents and heads of lettuce. I have some blooming echeverias that I can't quite ID. TRhere are so many that are similar . I appologize for jumping on your thread but they have pretty blooms too.

Love your tortoise. I haven't come across many people with pet tortoises around here but do know some people further south that keep them. Plenty of people around here have snakes and lizards but not tortoises. Wonder why?

Wantonamara those are beautiful. I especially, like the one in the 1st & 2nd pics.

I am thinking that it might be E. blue curls.

lookit that naughty tortie!!!!!! Well, not really, he's only doing what comes naturally to him. After all, the *are* succulents, har har 8) He looks great! Here in NY (LI) not many people keep them but I have known a few. Mostly only DVM's though, herp-folks. Thanks again for sharing, he's/she's real cute!

LOVE your tortise! I'm sure he fully appreciates the effort you went to to provide him with a fresh salad bar.

Only Echie I have blooming at the moment is Topsy Turvy

I have one of those also, but it is past its prime. It has been blooming for a long time. I have a E perle van nurnburg and a E black prince getting ready for a show.

I stumbled on this thread, had no idea these things made pretty flowers. How cool, and such amazing photos, in both composition and subject matter. So glad I looked!!
