Created by famed succulent hybridizer Dick Wright in 1980, Echeveria 'Lola' is a unique “rosebud” shaped succulent with green leaves featuring a hint of lavender, pink, and even light blue, enhanced by a thick layer of almost pearlescent farina – which means extra care must be taken not to mar the leaves with the oils from our fingerprints! As if this otherworldly look wasn’t enough, gorgeous coral hued, bell shaped blooms will grace delicate flower stalks in the early spring months, after the plant emerges from winter dormancy.
Echeveria 'Lola' needs filtered to bright light with ample airflow, to help avoid pests or other ills. Porous soil with great drainage, and thorough watering only when the soil is completely dry, will help avoid rot, as will ensuring that water does not become trapped between the plant’s fleshy leaves. The rosettes can grow up to 6 inches tall, though if the woody stems become too lanky, they can be cut and allowed to form a callous, before repotting into a new pot or arrangement.
Hardy to zone 9, these plants can survive a very light frost, but would prefer to be kept in warmer temperatures – after all, this plant’s family, Crassulaceae, is native to Mexico and Central America!
