Echeveria x imbricata 'Blue Rose' - A succulent with small, tight rosettes of grey-green obovate leaves that create offsets freely. Branched clusters of red flowers bloom in the spring and early summer. Full sun. Drought tolerant. We purchased this plant as Echeveria x imbricata with a common name Blue Rose but note that it is more open than the original form we grow under this name, which was a plant hybridized in the 1870s by by Jean-Baptiste A. Deleuil. Another plant that is being offered as Echeveria x imbricata in the nursery trade is a reverted form of the variegated plant 'Compton Carousel'. To differentiate these plants we are calling the 'Compton Carousel' reversion by the name Echeveria x imbricata 'Gray Swirl', the original form Echeveria x imbricata 'Jean-Baptiste' and calling this third variety Echeveria x imbricata 'Blue Rose'. For more information on the origin and naming of these plants, see our listing of Echeveria x imbricata 'Jean-Baptiste' This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We will also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information about this plant, in particular if this information is contrary to what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Echeveria x imbricata 'Blue Rose'.
