Purple Haze should have been named Chameleon. The photos say it all, just look at the color changes this heuffelii goes through.
A beautiful heuffelii that produces rosettes of beautiful color and form.
It does very well here in the Pacific Northwest. I wouldn't be without this beauty.
A must have for anyone wanting to grow heuffelii.
