Echeveria 'Perle von Nurnberg'

This is a hybrid between Echeveria gibbiflora ‘Metalica’ and E. potosina (now E. elegans) that was created by Richard Graessner of Perleberg, Germany in the 1930's. Graessner was a famous succulent plant grower in his time. E. 'Perle von Nurnberg' gets leggy with age and, like many Echeverias, should be topped and re-rooted every 3 or 4 years to look it's best
