Echeveria

 

a genus of primarily stemless perennial herbs of the family Crassulaceae. The fleshy leaves are in a basal rosette. The flowers are pentamerous and arranged in lateral racemose or spicate inflorescences. There are about 150 species, distributed in dry rocky regions in Texas and California (USA), as well as in Mexico and South America (to Peru). The plants are ornamentals. Propagation is by means of seeds and leaf and stem cuttings. Cultivated forms include E. glauca (or E. secunda), E. elegans, and the hybrids × Pachyveria and × Sediveria.
