Echeveria are attractive succulents, usually grown in Britain as houseplants, forming evergreen rosettes of fleshy leaves. There are many varieties and cultivars to choose from within the genus, from compact plants ideal for windowsill displays, to larger specimens better suited to growing in the conservatory or greenhouse. Echeverias flower in summer, but they are mostly grown for their foliage.

Echeveria 'Blue Frills' is a particularly lovely cultivar, bearing compact rosettes of symmetrical, frilled, blue-green leaves. For best results grow 'Blue Frills' in pots in well-drained compost, in a sunny position.
