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'
