Featured Succulent! Echeveria subrigida ‘Fire and Ice’

The Echeveria Fire and Ice is a very attractive large rosette forming Echeveria subrigida.  They form 9″ tall by 18″ wide rosettes of wide spade-shape blue-green leaves that are deeply channeled and have smooth margins that are often highlighted with pink or rose tones.  In late spring into mid-summer appear the heavy upright stalks bearing coral-pink flowers that are orange inside with red nectaries.  Plant in a very well-drained soil in full coastal sun to light shade.  Give occasional to infrequent irrigation spring through fall and try to keep on the dry side in winter.  Does great under an eave.
