One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Flowering Echeveria what a combination of symmetry and color with those incredible curves
I have loved and collected succulents since I was 12. That is now more than 45 years. For a while I was seduced by rarity, but you know what? Sometimes the simplest commonest plants are unbeatable. I bought this at a garden center this spring because the rosette was so lovely; it will probably go to the Florida Garden but I'm glad it's here now.
