Echeveria is a large genus of flowering plants in the Crassulaceae family, native to semi-desert areas of Central America, from Mexico to north-western South America.
Echeveria peacockii, also known as Echeveria desmetiana in Europe, is in the Crassulaceae family. It is very distinct from all other species, except for Echeveria subsessilis. Echeveria peacockii grows naturally in Mexico. It also grows in California, and can be traced to Dr. J. N. Rose's introduction of the plant. Echeveria peacockii tends to grow on rocky outcroppings at higher altitudes. In this type of environment, water is drained quickly from the roots of the plant, never allowing the plant to be submerged in water. This plant is fast growing and requires a bright light to prevent stretching, which forms an unhealthy plant. Echeveria peacockii produces 20 or more flowers.
