General Care for Echeveria imbricata “Blue Rose”
“Blue Rose” is popular among succulent lovers, and is one of the most common Echeverias you can find. It is one of the oldest Echeveria hybrids that is documented, being a combination of Echeveria glauca and Echeveria metallica.
As “Blue Rose” grows, the older leaves towards the bottom of the stem dry up, with healthy, newer leaves forming at the top. The leaves are covered by a powder, protecting the succulent from sun damage.
“Blue Rose” has typical watering needs for a succulent. It’s best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.
Where to Plant
“Blue Rose” is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 30° F (-1.1° C), it’s best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in partial sun to partial shade.
