Hardiness level Red
A beautiful form of Echeveria with a green centre surrounded by pointy-tipped leaves that become increasingly purple as they mature. The rosettes can grow to 10cms across and produce deep red flower spikes in summer.
Ideal for the conservatory. Pot into well drained soil, water sparingly and do not let water pool on the foliage. Hardy in sunny and VERY well drained spots in warm gardens e.g. central London, Cornwall and coastal areas.
N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
