As its name strongly suggests, Echeveria minima is what you might call a miniature echeveria. So while it can't come close to matching, say, ‘Afterglow’ or ‘Sahara’ on size, “pound for pound” it still holds its own in the eye candy department. This minima hybrid forms tiny rosettes of very chubby, frosty blue leaves. Those leaves are frosty rose at tips and along margins.Clusters profusely to form small mound. Racemes of small bell-shaped orange flowers appear in late spring. Excellent for adding contained flair to a windowsill or dish gardens, maybe several massed around a larger echeveria. This variety also is a champ in table settings and bouquets.
