Echeveria harmsii “Plush Plant”, commonly known as Plush Plant or Red Echeveria, is an evergreen subshrub native to Mexico. It forms small rosettes of fleshy, narrow, dark green, velvet-plush leaves adorned with red edges.
Echeveria harmsii bushy succulent is cultivated for its flowers rather than foliage. The plant is a small bush with stems up to about 30cm (12in) long, having a very lax rosette of leaves at the end. During the winter, the plant tends to drop most of its leaves, leaving a cluster of bare stems or a few short leaves at the ends of the stems. During the spring and early summer, the succulent leaves begin to develop again, and each stem is crowned by a number of thick, narrow slightly hairy leaves. As the spring days lengthen and the light increases, the plant produces its buds. The mature rosettes are about 8cm (3in) in diameter, but the flowers are nearly 4cm (1 l/2in) long and about 13mm (1/2in) in diameter, being bright red with yellow tips to the petals.
