Echeveria 'Zorro' A large frilly-type hybrid with rosettes that can reach to 16 inches wide, rising up on sturdy stems topped with contorted leaves that have frilly paler red to pink margins. Leaf color varies through the seasons and ranges from a gray-brown to dark burgundy red with new leaves often paler than mature ones. In winter the 3 foot tall erect inflorescences hold dark pink flowers. Plant in full sun to part shade (colors most vivid with bright light) in a well-drained soil. Water occasionally Hardy to 25-30 F. This plant originated as a seedling at Dick Wright's Nursery in Fallbrook, California but was named by Australian collector Bev Spiller. This large plant should be deheaded, callused and replanted every 3 to 4 years.  The information on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate 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 'Zorro'.
