Blue Rose Echeveria
Echeveria 'Imbricata' is a small evergreen succulent forming tight rosettes of fleshy, saucer shaped, blue-green leaves. It produces offsets very freely. They hug the mother rosette, creating overlapping circles. In the spring and early summer, a flowering spike bearing loose clusters of small, bell-shaped orange-red flowers is on display. This is one of the hardiest of the Echeverias, tolerating short durations of temperatures down to 20 F (-6 C). Echeveria 'Imbricata is one of the oldest hybrids and results from a cross between Echeveria glauca and Echeveria metallica.
Full sun to filtered shade. Average Water Needs; Water regularly; do not over water.
As with all succulents, the most dangerous situation is too much water- they should never be allowed to sit in water under any circumstances.
These decorative little plants can be grown in interesting containers such as tea cups and even miniature baby shoes. Make sure the container had adequate drainage. If it doesn t, it might be a good idea to pop the plant out of its container and add a layer of gravel to the bottom to reduce the wicking action of the soil above.
