Echeveria 'Powder Blue' (White Rose Echeveria) This attractive succulent freely offsets to form clusters of leafy rosettes to 1 foot wide with soft pale blue-green that are nearly flat on the upper surface but arch upwards towards the middle of the plant. These leaves are up to 6 inch long and 2 inches wide at the widest point near the pink-margined tips and have a waxy white coating. In summer appear the 1 foot tall stems that bend over with the weight of the large (for Echeveria) pink flowers. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well-drained soil. Hardy to around 25F. This plant is listed as a hybrid of Echeveria subrigida in "Echeveria Cultivars" by Rudolph (Lorraine) Schulz and Attila Kapitany (Schulz Publishing, 2005) where it also notes that it is synonymous with 'White Rose' - the name 'Powder Blue' is applied to several different plants including one with large yellow flowers. Our plant from Longview Horticulture in Australia.  The information on this page is based on the research that we have conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from what we have found on reliable online sources, as well as from observations made of our crops of this plant growing in the nursery and of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may 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 'Powder Blue'.
