Echeveria 'Imbricata'

'Imbricata' Echeveria, Blue Rose Echeveria, Echeveria x imbricata, Hen and Chicks


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.

  • Grows up to 4-8 in. tall (10-20 cm) and 4-6 in. wide (10-15 cm).
  • Easily grown in sandy, well-drained soils in sun or partial shade. Indoors, provide bright light. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season. Once established, water occasionally to very little.
  • Perfect for rock gardens, containers where spectacular floral arrangements can be created.
  • Virtually disease free. Watch for mealybugs, vine weevil and aphids
  • Propagate by stem or leaf cuttings in spring or early summer. Separate offsets in spring
  • Native to Mexico
