An especially prolific variety that is quick to produce offsets, Echeveria 'Azulita' is replete with miniature rosettes of icy-blue leaves adorned with deep red leaf tips. The alluring appearance of this variety is due in part to a thick coating of farina, which lends a powdery and delicate look to the chubby leaves. As it matures, the 5-inch wide rosettes will form small clusters, perfect for a standalone container, as an accent within an arrangement, or as a groundcover in a rock garden in climates above Zone 10.
Hailing from the arid regions of Mexico, 'Azulita' prefers bright sunlight, which will not only deepen its coloration but also protect against etiolating, or stretching. Its other needs are typical of most succulents, including porous soil with adequate drainage, and thorough watering only when the soil is dry. Take care to provide ‘Azulita’ with ample airflow, and avoiding pouring water directly into the rosettes to help avoid pests and rot.
Once you have mastered ‘Azulita’s care, keep an eye out for periodic inflorescences of bright, golden-orange blooms!
