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'The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Echeveria x imbricata 'Blue Rose'.
