We heartily endorse Echeveria ‘Lime n’ Chile’ for this role. It forms frosty lime-green rosettes of chunky leaves, the tips of which may turn a spicy pink-red, and sends up coral & gold flowers. When clustered, this Altman Plants original hybrid provides quite the flower show, as each rosette can develop four to five inflorescences. Sometimes the leaves are slightly variegated, exhibiting a stippled appearance.
It looks especially saucy when paired with plants that play off its greenery. We particularly like a couple of green-tinged “players” from the genus Anacampseros for this role: A. telephiastrum variegata (sunrise) and A. rufescens. You may succulents in the coral-pink-red realm thriving at home that would go smashingly with it, like Graptosedum ‘California Sunset’ or rainbow hedgehog cactus. There are also fine candidates in the Aloe domain, such as dwarf hybrids A. ‘Delta Dawn’ and A. ‘Pink Blush’. Picking up and/or complementing the green foliage via a container will work to great effect too.
In the video below, succulent whisperer Tom touts this lime-green echeveria’s penchant for producing chicks.
Pachyveria ‘Glauca’ is a diminutive but distinctive gem
We succulent lovers sure do live in a golden age of gorgeous variety. Pachyveria ‘Glauca’, aka “little jewel,” is a Pachyphytum × Echeveria mash-up — a cross between two members of the family Crassulaceae.
