One of the misconceptions of succulent gardens is that there are no flowers. I have already shown the spectacular agave flower spike, and the glorious yucca flowers and there is nothing brighter than a green house full of cacti flowering. There is pretty much something in flower ever day of the year and one of the best plants for this are echeverias.
Apart form the different shapes, sizes and colours I have mentioned in previous posts, another unusual aspect of these plants is that they flower at different times; so you have spring, summer, autumn and winter flowers. In fact this year I have had at least one plant in flower on every single day and despite being so cold outside, I still have many varieties flowering both inside and out.
So no matter how cold or grey it gets there is also a little bit of colour to brighten up my days.
