Echeveria pulvinata is a perennial succulent plant, from the Echeveria genus from Mexico. The easy to grow plant is a member of the Crassulaceae family. Its common names include Chenille Plant, Ruby Slippers, Plush Plant, Ruby Blush and Red Velvet.
The attractive small shrubby Echeveria pulvinata plant only grows about a foot high, with a spreading growth habit that can quickly sprawl many feet. The orange-red flowers appear late in the wintertime and continue into the spring. First, a 1′ foot long flower spike appears. Next racemes of bell-shaped flowers grow. As with all Echeveria plants, the flowers are attractive to pollinators and hummingbirds when planted outdoors. Succulent green leaves grow in small rosettes (no larger than 3″ or 4″ inches across) on long stems. The green leaves of Echeveria pulvinata are covered thickly with white hairs which help protect them from the harsh rays of the sun.
