Echeveria carunculata x



Echeveria carunuculata hybrid

Echeverias start to produce brilliant coloured leaves during the cooler months. Red leaves become more intense in colour , purple leaves get quite iridescent and the pink ones take on a metallic sheen. This hybrid shows the somewhat grotesque knobbly growths called carunculations on top of the leaf. It is not for everyones taste and it usually gets the comment that it looks a bit "warty".It makes a good pot plant and requires some frost protection over winter.
