Sort of like a low lying shrub (it’s about 4 or 5 inches tall). Spindly, woody stems. Leaves are quite dark green, fuzzy and coming to a point at the ends.

Fuzzy leaves with pointy tips
by: Nanny Burd

I agree Marjorie, it is a crassulae mesem….. (can’t spell, my bad) I have one also. It was labeled on the 3″ pot I bought it in.

I do have another dark green, fuzzy leaved succulent that wasn’t labeled tho… it has thick, ovate leaves and the” fuzz” is much finer, covering the leaf surface entirely.

It was in poor shape and I had to behead it, but am looking for its name now.

Thanks, Jackie!

Thanks, Jackie! Yes, now that I have that name to search with, it is clear that this is exactly what it is! I was absolutely certain it wasn’t an echeveria… Mystery solved!

This is not an Echeveria it is Crassula mesembryanthemoides.

A Shrubby Echeveria
by: Jacki

Not all Echeveria are rosette forming. Some, like this one, form a little woody shrublike plant, with alternating leaves quite unlike the other types.

This is Echeveria pulvinata, which I have grown but I have no pictures of. It’s one of the parents of a couple of other similarly fuzzy types like Echeveria set-oliver, which you can see here.

Like all Echeveria, they have the same care requirements.
