Black Prince Echeveria

Echeveria 'Black Prince'
Synonym: Chocolate

This little cutey was blooming inside the Alpine House at Wave Hill. The scarlet color is only partially represented here. The leaves were kind of black with a slight dusty appearance to them. In order for them to really turn black full sun is necessary. This is a tender plant that can tolerate some low temperatures for brief times but generally should be grown in a frost free environment or a container that can be brought inside.
