This Echeveria didn't flower till late August last year
It's one of my favorite plants. The bloom on the leaves and stems is wonderful, the color and shape of the flowers are great, I could admire the arc of the flowering stem for the 6 weeks it's in bloom, and it's so easy. I abuse it all winter; it goes back and forth between etiolating when I water it and dropping leaves when I don't but here it's flowering again just like I'd treated the way it deserved to be treated.
