Echeveria 'Morning Beauty' (Morning Beauty Echeveria) - Small solitary plant with 3 to 4 inch wide rosettes of numerous (50 or more), densely crowded blue-gray glaucous leaves with long tapering leaf tips and fine pink to red margins that are slightly keeled on the upper surface. The yellow-orange flowers are borne on several erect, then curving over, unbranched stems in spring. Plant in cool full sun in a well-drained soil with occasional to infrequent irrigation. Hardiness is not known but likely will be fine to 20-25 F. There is considerable confusion surrounding this attractive plant with various listed origins. It is listed as similar to Echeveria peacockii in Rudolf (Lorraine) Shultz and Attila Kapitany's Echeveria Cultivars with the note that it is possibly a naturally occurring selection of this species, which comes from Puebla, Mexico. Others list it as a cultivar of Echeveria subssellis, but this species is now considered to be a synonym with Echeveria peacockii. The International Crassulaceae Network lists this cultivar as a hybrid between Echeveria cante and Echeveria shaviana, noting that it is another sister seedling to Don Worth's exceptional Echeveria 'Afterglow' and sister seedling 'Morning Star'.  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 'Morning Beauty'.
