If you thought the frilly-edged Echeverias we featured in our previous issue were something special, then take a look at these bumpy beauties! These interesting Echeveria hybrids boast unique bumps (called caruncles) on their foliage, giving them a standout feature that’s rich in texture.

Meet Echeveria ‘Etna’ and other intriguing carunculated varieties, available at garden centres now. 

How to grow These Echeverias thrive in full sun to partial shade but will become leggy if planted in too much shade; in frost areas, protect them with frost cloth or move to a sheltered spot. They are fairly drought-tolerant and flourish with regular feeding. Always remove any water that gathers inside the rosette as this may cause rot and fungal diseases that will kill the plant.
