Echeveria setosa

25 10 2011

Echeveria setosa, a member of the Stonecrop family (Crassulaceae), is native to Mexico and is commonly known as the Mexican fire cracker or firecracker plant. It blooms from early to late April with bright red and yellow flowers. Echeverias are my favorite type of succulent and these on display in large glazed pots at the U.S. Botanic Garden are stunning!

This is a gorgeous photo, Cindy. I love when succulents look that soft. Just beautifully done. 🙂

Pretty to look at but don’t touch? I touched a cactus similar to this years ago because it looked soft but then I spent the next several minutes removing the little pricklies from my fingers. Even still, what a beautiful photograph!

Ooooh! Another favorite. Look at that texture. Excellent shot but I expect no less from you :).
