Tom talks about a hens-and-chicks succulent that will light up your landscape or glow from a container: Echeveria ‘Lola’. The plant forms a sculpted rosette with a somewhat “rosebud” shape. Leaves are alabaster marble with a delicate blush of pinkish violet and tipped with rose. Rosette gives the impression of alabaster wax suffused with violet. Flowers are peach, bell-shaped and appear in spring. Would look great in a centerpiece or bridal bouquet.
