This succulent is tolerant of cold temperatures, and it capable of tolerating temps as low as 10° to 30° F.

The pink granite succulent has a long stem and heavy rosette which causes it to be a trailing succulent and is identifiable by its soft pink leaves. In the fall season, keep your eyes out for the white flowers this succulent produces.

The pink butterflies succulent is a cross-breed between the Kalanchoe delagoensis and the Kalanchoe daigremontiana. True to it’s name, this succulent grows long, green leaves with small petals around the edges that have a butterfly-like appearance.
You can cut off each petal to propagate it and create more pink butterflies! This particular species of succulent is very fragile and prone to damage, so handle with extreme care.

Like many of its kind, the echeveria laui is a very easy succulent to care for, and is a popular choice amongst succulent owners of all skill sets.
