  • Posted by Baja_Costero (Baja California - Zone 11b) on Oct 29, 2017 10:04 PM concerning plant:
    Robust glaucous pink hybrid Echeveria by R. Graessner. Parentage is E. gibbiflora "Metallica" (a selection of gibbiflora distinct from the hybrid of the same name) x E. potosina (now E. elegans). Best color with strong light. Leaf color may be uneven and is often redder/pinker at the center of the rosette. There are a few named cultivars of this plant, based on unusual leaf color or shape (eg. "Karl von Nurnberg", "Serena") and there are also named hybrids ("Lolita") and presumed self-pollinated offspring ("Son of Pearl").
