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 information about Echeveria secunda 'Blue Mist' displayed is based on research conducted in our horticultural library and from reliable online resources. We also will relate observations made about it as it grows in our nursery gardens and other gardens we have visited, as well how the crops have performed in containers in our nursery field. We will also incorporate comments that we receive from others and we welcome hearing from anyone with additional information, particularly if they can share any cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
