    Been to a tropical country recently and saw quite a handful of varieties(from broad to thin and curly leaves) of San Francisco plant as locals call them. Any info re its number of varieties.?

    Native to Asian tropical countries, there are hundreds of them actually. I like its foliage shapes a lot because it one variety can be different from the other.

    Be careful though because it’s poisonous. For some people, they can have skin eczema when the sap contacts their skin.

    @Thanks, Eva.. Wow.. explains why I saw several varieties in a small village where I was.

    @MelindaIt’s good to know thanks. Just touched the leaves, no sap.  🙂

    Echeveria pilosa is a beautiful succulent that forms rosettes of green leaves that turn reddish at the tips when exposed to full sun. Stems are erect, simple or rarely branched and up to 3.2 inches (8 cm) tall. All parts of the plant except the inside of the flowers are covered with fine white hairs. Flowers are orange-red with a yellow tip, bell-shaped, and usually appear in summer at the end of a leafy, up to 1 foot (30 cm) tall flower stalk. E. pilosa is similar in appearance to Echeveria coccinea, but it has shorter stems and a branched cluster of flowers.
