Echeveria subalpina

Looking closer into yesterday's image we come across Echeveria subalpina, showing off its hues in the afternoon sun. From central Mexico at medium elevation, it grows without a stalk and rarely offsets, and the color is quite variable depending on the environment. The leaves tend to have an upright growth.
If you can find them, they're well worth having in any collection. Unfortunately, we don't have enough in stock at this time to offer them, but we're propagating...or rather, Lynn-Marie is!

  1. Very beautiful striking colours, a bit like a lotus.
