Echeveria secunda 'Blue Mist' (Blue Mist Hens and Chicks) - This succulent forms attractive clumps under 6 inches tall with tight rosettes of short chalky whitish gray leaves and in late spring appear flowers on 1 foot tall arching stems. The flowers are fairly large compared to the plant and have red calyces and yellow petals, giving them a bi-colored appearance. A hint of pink on older leaves and leaf margins is evident, primarily in winter. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well-drained soil and irrigate occasionally. This tightly-clustered plant freely produces offsets and in the right situation, it can form a large planting. We originally received this plant in 2012 from Robin Stockwell of Succulent Gardens Nursery in Castroville, California. He selected it as a unique plant from a flat Echeveria secunda that he had received from another nursery and named it 'Blue Mist'. This plant has whiter gray colored leaves that lay flatter in larger rosettes than the typical species we also grow - for more information on it please see our listing of Echeveria secunda 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 secunda 'Blue Mist'.
