Echeveria peacockii | Rating: 1 votes | Print / Pdf

These peacocks will add that stately home feel to your gardens and you don't even have to feed them.

Echeveria peacockii is a simple to cultivate plant that is perfect if you’re wanting to grow something a bit different. It’s an evergreen perennial, and has leaves that grow in rosette formation and that are almost a bluish green in tone. In the summer time it grows tall, wiry stems that are topped with yellow and orange blooms. It is somewhat of a heat lover, so does best either in a conservatory or indoor situation, or you can grow outside in the summer and move inside during the colder months. Plant in full sunlight for the best results.
