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 secundaThe information on this page is based on the research that we have conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from what we have found on reliable online sources, as well as from observations made of our crops of this plant growing in the nursery and of plants growing 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 secunda 'Blue Mist'.
