Echeveria lutea - A beautiful small solitary growing plant to 8 inches wide with narrow 4 to 6 inch long reddish-purple leaves that enroll at the margins, forming a deep hollow in the middle of the leaf on the upper surface with the green lower surface facing up, giving the plant a distinct bi-colored look. This coloration and rolled leaf are most prominent when water-stressed or when grown in full sun - with regular irrigation shade grown plants flatten out a bit and are greener. The unbranched flower inflorescence appears during summer and rises well above the foliage on a straight stalk and arches over towards the tip so that the clear yellow flowers point downwards. In habitat this species is a shade or only part sun growing plant but in cooler coastal climates it will likely take full sun and the leaf coloration will likely be redder. Hardiness not known. The specific epithet 'lutea' refers to this plants saffron-yellow flowers.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Echeveria lutea.
