Waterwise Succulent with Intricate Ruffles Echeveria Truffles

  • Low-Maintenance Xeriscape
  • Concentric Rosette Shape Creates a Unique Garden
  • Dazzling Colors that Range from Purple to Blue to Pink

If cabbage had its Cinderella moment, it would ask its fairy godmother to turn it into Echeveria Truffles. Just like their culinary counterpart, Echeveria Truffles (Echeveria shaviana 'Truffles'), with their rich blues and violets, are a delicacy for your eyesight.

And like most succulents, this uniquely-shaped plant grows best in full sun with low-moisture soil that's well-drained. They thrive in rocky soil, bringing a lush feeling to some of the rockier, drier regions of your yard.

They love to be drenched in sunshine. In fact, this plant makes for an excellent landscaping solution for the edges of your yard where other plants refuse to grow. Try it in the "hellstrip" between your sidewalk and the street.

Plant a row of these to create a neat and tidy Xeriscape design or plant them in a ring around your bird feeder or mailbox. You can even keep them potted next to your front door, bench, or in a window planter. This plant even thrives indoors as a prized houseplant.

Your neighbors are sure to stop and investigate this plant's leaves that ruffle out in elegant concentric circles from its center. Its rosette shape isn't the only thing that makes this succulent fascinating—the thick leaves that come to a point range in colors from silvery blue to purple, to even pinkish around the edges. Plucking the bottom leaves of this plant keeps it healthy and perky.

And with Echeveria Truffles, there's less fuss and muss compared to most plants. This non-hardy succulent is drought resistant, so if you forget a watering, it won't shrivel up.

Although this plant is somewhat frost tolerant, it doesn't do well with long-term freezing temperature. So, you may want to keep it potted to bring inside for the winter. And even though this plant can go without a lot of watering, it is most stunning when fertilized and watered once its soil becomes dry.

This ruffled succulent will bring excitement and variety to your garden. And it grows well with little maintenance. Order yours today!
