Sunny days are hard to come by in February and it is difficult to know when blue skies will appear. Until warmer temperatures come out to play, create your own ray of succulent sunshine with Sedeveria ‘Blue Elf,’ or better known as the “Happy Plant.” What gives this hybrid its cheery nickname, “Happy Plant,” are its beautiful flowers. Blooming multiple times a year, they transform the “Blue Elf’ from subtle to showstopper as its flowers pop like a bright sunshine yellow. It is enough warmth to uplift your spirits on even the cloudiest, coldest days of February. Our little elf is a delicate teal-green with rosy red tips that will slowly darken to a deep burgundy with bright light, cool temperatures, and a slight deprivation of water. It is both hardy and readily multiplies in the right environmental conditions. Similar to our sweet little Graptoveria ‘Bashful’ featured last month, the Sedeveria remains compact and charming, producing chicks around the base of the plant. As temperatures drop below 36F, bring the succulent sunshine indoors to avoid damage to the ‘Blue Elf.’ Plant this little charmer in a funky container with adequate drainage and set it on a windowsill where it can flourish in the morning sunlight. When the temperatures warm, add a fresh face outdoors to a container garden, bouquet, or centerpiece. Sunny days may seem miles away, but do not let this stop you from shining on. Let us keep you smiling with our favorite “Happy Plant”: Sedeveria ‘Blue Elf.’ Sedeveria ‘Blue Elf’ is now available on our retail shop and Cactus shop!
