Persistent Bloom

These Succulent Blooms are now going into their seventh week.

They are Echeveria glauca and are named after the 18th century Spanish botanist Atanasio Echeverria Codoy.
Native to Mexico, they are hearty plants that require little care, lots of light, and only limited amounts of water.

Very pretty; great color. I see this Echeveria frequently in plantings but never saw the flower before. It has similar blooms to the Hesperaloehttp://www.pbase.com/cmvb/image/133942299/medium V
