Description

Echeveria ‘Doris Taylor’ is an attractive succulent up to 2 inches (5 cm) tall, that forms rosettes of fleshy leaves, pale-green in color, with red margins in full sun and covered with small white hairs. It produces bright orange flowers in the spring-autumn months.

How to Grow and Care

Place the Woolly Rose where it will receive full morning sun or partially shaded afternoon sunlight. If the it is in a pot, place it out on the balcony or porch during warm, sunny weather. Give the Woolly Rose at least a foot (30 cm) of space on each side to prevent it from being crowded by other plants.

Water whenever the soil feels dry during the growing season. Water lightly until the soil is moist but not very wet. Woolly Rose can go for a long period without water once they are established, but they grow better and faster if they receive regular watering during the growing season. Reduce watering during the winter, allowing the soil to dry thoroughly between waterings.

Fertilize Woolly Rose with liquid 2-7-7 succulent and cactus fertilizer during the growing season, from spring to late summer. Add seven drops of the fertilizer to 1 quart of water and sprinkle around the base of the succulent. Fertilize once every two weeks.

Woolly Rose will drop many of its lower leaves during the winter. Remove shriveled and fallen leaves as they accumulate around the base of the plant. Discard the leaves before they begin to rot. Decaying leaves can spread disease to the rest of the plant if not removed…. – See more at: How to Grow and Care for a Woolly Rose (Echeveria ‘Doris Taylor’)
