3.5" Echeveria 'Imbricata' "Blue Rose"
Leaf margins are nearly white, giving the rosette a crisp and almost metallic quality. This Echeveria is considered to be a hybrid of Echeveria glauca and Echeveria gibbiflora var. metallica.Very popular for years in landscapes and gardens. Excellent as patio plant, or in the rock garden as a color accent or to provide structural composition. In habitat, many Echeverias grow on rocky outcroppings at higher altitudes. In this habitat, the water drains quickly away from the roots of the plant, never allowing the plant to remain waterlogged. For this reason, it is essential in cultivation to use a very porous soil, which will allow quick drainage. Bright light is required to prevent "stretching" of Echeverias ("stretching" occurs when a moderately fast growing plant such as an Echeveria, is grown in dim light or over-fertilized, which causes overly lush growth that contributes to weak, pallid plants). Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost.
