Plant the love of the holy ones within your spirit;
donít give your heart to anything
but the love of those whose hearts are glad.
Donít go to the neighborhood of despair:
there is hope - Rumi
Echeveria elegans also called Mexican snow ball, Mexican gem, white Mexican rose, is a species of flowering plant in the Crassulaceae family, native to semi-desert habitats in Mexico.
Echeveria elegans is cultivated as an ornamental plant for rock gardens planting, or as a potted plant. It thrives in subtropical climates such as Hawaii
Like others of its kind, it produces multiple offsets which can be separated from the parents in spring, and grown separately - hence the common name 'hen and chicks', applied to several species within the genus Echeveria.
Echeveria is a large genus of succulents in the Crassulaceae family.
They are native from Mexico to northwestern South America.
The genus Echeveria is named after the 18th century Spanich botanist Atanasio Echeverria Codoy.
