Within this family (about 300 species in the collection), the genus echeveria. These succulents are beautiful rosette-shaped plants with a huge range of sizes and colors, from black (E. affinis) to pink (E. lilacine), going through green, gray and blue. Others, like E. sing Y E. lauii, are characterized by leaves covered by a layer of waxy powder. dudleya exhibits large silvery-white rosettes, while genera such as sedum (the popular evergreens) groups climbing, creeping plants and form extended clumps.
