|Habit and Cultural Information|
Description Echeveria ‘Dondo’ – A compact clumping succulent with tight 4 inch wide rosettes of gray-green colored leaves that are broadest near the leaf tip; this tip has a small soft spine and is sometimes blushed red. Small dark yellow to slightly orange bell-shaped flowers rise above the foliage on several stalks from the center of the rosette in late winter into spring. Plant in full coastal sun or light shade to shade inland in a well-drained soil. Hardy to around 20°F. The parentage of this plant is unclear as some list it as Echeveria derenbergii x E. runyonii while others as Echeveria derenbergii x E. setosa. It is noted as a hybrid from Germany in Rudolf (Lorraine) Shultz and Attila Kapitany’s Echeveria Cultivars but with uncertain origins and no description. There appear to be several very different plants in the trade using this name including plants with very green leaves that may also be called ‘Kircheriana’. Our plants from Longview Horticulture match plants in the collection at the Huntington Botanic Garden. The information on this page is based on research conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery’s garden and in other gardens where we have observed it. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural tips that would aid others in growing Echeveria ‘Dondo’.
