Echeveria planted on the rockery. One of my larger ones.
Nice bluish grey colour with orangey tones on the edges.

Thank you Bathgate. I’ve bought several recently. They seem to be a reliable plant on my rather vertical rockery.

The Rockery look great from what I can see of it. Would love to see more of it.

Thank you!! I’ll pop some more pics on. Weather supposed to be better over the weekend.

OH that's good. Ironically, my pictures seem to come out better on cloudy or overcast days, or at evening when the sun isn't so strong. The subtle colors don't get 'bleached out'.

Yes, cloudy days are better for pics aren't they? Kate, will the Echeverias survive outside all winter? I've just sent my daughter off with a good sized 'Pearl of Nuremburg' and told her it should be ok out all winter in Dorset.

Hi Kate, all Echeveria's are frost tender, and like a minimum winter temperature of 45f, occasionally down to 41, but they don't like winter damp either, Derek.

Hi Karen, I’ve had a few on the rockery for a couple of three years now. They do seem to do well. They are on a slight incline so don’t get waterlogged fortunately!
I tend to agreed with you and Bathgate, cloudy days do seem better when taking pics in the garden!
Thanks Derek, I wasn’t sure about the temperature with them. It’s good to know and keep an eye on this. Thanks again.
