Echeveria longissima - Our Unique Varieties

Echeveria longissima is one of the first species of succulent plants I had to chase to find. It has proportionally huge, beautifully coloured flowers, so it became one of my first treasured plants. I ended up selling many hundreds to Korea for years when they discovered this beautiful species. It turns out that Australia has a special clone quite different to the wild species, collectors overseas really pine for the Australian clone. It turns out many Asian growers have grown Echeveria longissima from seed, but they lack the lovely shape and dark red colour under the leaves of the Australian clone, which we asexually produce at our nursery.
