Echeveria 'Black Prince' is a slow and low growing, succulent plant that produces clumps of short rosettes, up to 3 inches (7.5 cm) wide, with thin, triangular and dark leaves. These leaves first emerge greenish, but darken to a deep lavender brown.
Echeveria ‘Black Prince’ is a favorite succulent plant, especially of those who like the dark purple look of the leaves, which are so deep they appear black. Those looking to add something a little different to the landscape or container gardens will certainly enjoy this easy-care plant. Leaves will first be green and darken as they mature. The center of the plant is usually green. A low grower, the Black Prince plant has a rosette that can reach 3 inches (7.5 cm.) across. It is attractive in mixed containers or planted together with a few of the same type. Black Prince’ succulent produces offsets, what we often call babies, that can fill your container and sometimes even spill over the sides. Offsets of the growing Black Prince echeveria grow from the bottom, growing upward against the mother plant. You may remove these babies to grow in other containers if you’d like.
