Pachyphytum

This group of succulents contains around 10 Mexican species related to Echeveria. The name Pachyphytum comes from the Greek for 'thick leaves'. They have softly colored rounded leaves usually covered with a fine powder.

CULTIVATION TIPS
Summer growers. Hardy plants requiring free-draining mix and regular summer water. Minimal water in winter. They love full sun and are drought tolerant. The white pruinose stem coatings of the plants are sensitive to handling as skin oil can damage the leaves. Frost hardy to -7°C.
