Echeveria 'Laulindsa' - A beautiful slow growing cultivar that forms a mostly solitary stemless rosette 8 to 12 inches across with thick 4 inch long spathulate gray leaves with reddish margins and leaf surfaces covered with a powdery-white waxy coating. The 1 foot long flowering stems branch and arch over with small salmon pink flowers that have bright orange interiors. Plant in full sun to bright light in a well-drained soil. Although not as sensitive to this as its parent Echeveria laui, it is best to irrigate this plant gently or preferably from the side or below and avoid touching to avoid removing the white coating on the leaves. We have not had this plant outdoors through a very cold winter, but suggest that it be protected from frost so not to mar its foliage. This plant is a hybrid between Echeveria laui and E. lindsayana, hence the name that is a combination of the parent's epithets. Echeveria laui, a beautiful slow growing plant with particularly thick narrow white leaves that was first described in 1974 by Alfred Bernhard Lau from plants collected near the town of Quiotepec along the Rio Salado in Oaxaca. The pollen parent Echeveria lindsayana is a plant first described by Eric Walther in 1972 from plants in cultivation and later discovered growing at Volcán de Tequila, Jalisco. It is now considered to be a form of Echeveria colorata. This hybrid cross was made by the late Robert Grim of Salinas, California, who was responsible such other hybrids as 'Moondust' (E. laui x E. lilacina), 'Paloma' (E. colorata x E. lilacina), x Graptoveria 'Opalina' (Echeveria colorata x Graptopetalum amethystinum) and × Graptosedum 'California Sunset' (Graptopetalum paraguayense x Sedum adophii). This plant is also sometimes listed as Echeveria 'Laulindsay' or just as 'Laulind'. We first received this beautiful plant in 2013 from San Luis Obispo area succulent grower and nurseryman Nick Wilkinson, who told us that he received it from Korean plantsman SeongJu Hwang. 

This information about Echeveria 'Laulindsa' 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.
