Echeveria 'Dondo' - A compact clumping succulent with tight 4 inch wide rosettes of gray-green colored leaves that are broadest near the leaf tip; this tip has a small soft spine and is sometimes blushed red. Small dark yellow to slightly orange bell-shaped flowers rise above the foliage on several stalks from the center of the rosette in late winter into spring. Plant in full coastal sun or light shade to shade inland in a well-drained soil. Hardy to around 20F. The parentage of this plant is unclear as some list it as Echeveria derenbergii x E. runyonii while others as Echeveria derenbergii x E. setosa. It is noted as a hybrid from Germany in Rudolf (Lorraine) Shultz and Attila Kapitany's Echeveria Cultivars but with uncertain origins and no description. There appear to be several very different plants in the trade using this name including plants with very green leaves that may also be called 'Kircheriana'. Our plants from Longview Horticulture match plants in the collection at the Huntington Botanic Garden.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Echeveria 'Dondo'.
