Black Prince, an exceptional echeveria

I am obsessed with succulents and this obsession has been going on now for a decade os so now so my collection is getting really large. I love most succulents but my craze started off with mostly echeverias.

In this post I will share with you some photos of one of the best and certainly my favourite and just now it is flowering too! Echeveria ‘Black Prince’ has foliage to match its name and its flowering stalk rises up to nine or so inches and displays bright green buds which break open to show off its beautiful salmon orange flowers.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

I do so love succulents as they often are so well suited for my particular climate/area (sandy soil, hot temps in summer, cold in winter and often, long periods of drought) – – I have many ‘rescued from clearance shelf at local nursery’ succulents that just go on and on without anything from me but planting them, and appreciating them.
