A super strong succulent with lime-green leaves, ‘lipstick’ owes its nickname to the red eges that intensify dramatically when it is exposed to frequent sunshine.
Born in Mexico
The Echeveria belongs to the family of the Crassulaceae and grows in the North-East of Mexico. This part of Mexico consists mainly of deserts with barren hilly landscapes. Here the Echeveria grows against a rocky background. Mexico is about 47 times larger than the Netherlands and because of the great diversity in landscapes the climate also varies greatly. This Echeveria is sometimes also called the rosette succulent and has the most divergent and amazing coloured leaves of all succulents.
