Mexican Hen & Chicks
Echeveria runyonii Topsy Turvy is a fast growing rosette-forming succulent, up to 10 inches (25 cm) in diameter. The leaves are pale blue-green to silvery-grey, up to 5 inches (12.5 cm) long and up 1 inch (2.5 cm) wide, often with pink tips, spatulate, strongly inversely keeled on the lower surface with leaf tips pointing inwards towards the center of the plant. The showy bright orange flowers rise above the foliage on tall arching inflorescence, usually in late summer or fall.
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.
Suitable for Container, Rock Garden & Xeriscaping
