The newest issue in the series of round global forever stamps from the United States Postal Service features a green succulent plant known as the echeveria.
The global forever stamps can be used to mail a 1-ounce letter to any country where first-class international mail service is available, regardless of future rate changes.
The central stamp’s design is described as an existing photograph by Erika Kirkpatrick of the echeveria, a succulent native to the Americas often kept as an ornamental plant in the United States.
The stamp was designed by Greg Breeding, and William J. Gicker was the art director for the project.
The Green Succulent stamps are the sixth in an ongoing series of round global forever stamps. The first, showing a view of Earth from space, was issued on Jan. 28, 2013.
The round shape of these stamps, along with the inscription “Global,” was initially intended to distinguish it as postage for international letter mail rather than domestic letter mail.
Stamps Pattern Background
Succulents in general are drought-resistant plants and therefore native to arid regions. The plants store water in fleshy leaves or stems that sustain the plant for extended periods.
Popular succulents in U.S. households include the jade plant and the aloe. Most varieties of cacti are also considered succulents.
The echeveria genus of succulent plants includes a wide range of flowering varieties produced in numerous shapes, colors, and sizes.
Resources commonly identify the plant as native to Mexico, Central America, and the northern reaches of South America. Varieties for household decor and ornamental landscaping are sold in the United States.
Examples as small as 3 inches in diameter are found, while others sprawl to become 2 feet wide or more.
Technical details for the Green Succulent global forever stamp were not immediately available from the Postal Service.
The Green Succulent Stamps are used for letters, mailing envelopes, or collecting but for collectibles, birthdays, teachers, occasions, weddings, parties, showers, celebrations, and more.
