Succulents are typically grown for their foliage. The unique shapes and leaf colors are the main attraction for these plants. However, succulents also display pretty little flowers.
Because the foliage of succulents is so showy, it is commonly mistaken for a flower. Colorful Echeveria plants are frequently used in bouquets and flower arrangements where they are called “echeveria flowers.” These are the plants, not the flowers. Succulent plant flowers are typically dainty and grow on a flower stalk.
Some succulents only produce flowers after years of growth. Several die after flowering. However, many succulent plants produce flowers year after year. Each variety will flower in a slightly different season; spring, summer, or fall.
The flowers on succulents may be small, but they are just as unique and beautiful as the plants themselves.
