Vigorous and popular, Echeveria 'Imbricata' is a small evergreen succulent forming tight rosettes of fleshy, saucer-shaped, blue-green leaves. It produces offsets very freely. They hug the mother rosette, creating overlapping circles. In the spring and early summer, a flowering spike bearing loose clusters of small, bell-shaped orange-red flowers is on display. This is one of the hardiest of the Echeverias, tolerating short durations of temperatures down to 20ºF (-6ºC). Echeveria 'Imbricata‘ is one of the oldest hybrids and results from a cross between Echeveria glauca and Echeveria metallica. A great choice for rock gardens or containers.
