I aquired this in a recent trade. It was gowing in her flower beds in CA. Any ideas what it is? The stems were a little longer but I potted them up shorter.


Thanks for your help.

Well, we know this is an Echeveria, but which?! How large are the rosettes? Is it a green blue as I see in the pic or more of a grey to you?

Niel, are you out there & do you recognize this one?

That pic is mostly true to color. It is green blue like you see. The rosette is about three inches across.

I'll take to looking at Echeveria pictures, but that takes forever with my dial up..... :(

We're calling it E. imbricata. Nice plant, will form a large clump in a protected garden.

That is an attractive Echeveria WindsurfGirl, until now I didn't know it's name either, (thanks BH) we see it a lot in gardens down here along with E. elegans and several other of the more common Echs.

Thanks for the ID BH.
Too bad this one is not hardy in my zone...
It will have to spend winters in a pot in the greenhouse.
Thanks for the link Amy, I'll go check that out.

The color is really nice, and reminds me of E. subsessilis (which is similar to peacockii).

Reminds me of Ech. elegans, w/ such a perfectly formed & pointed-tip rosette. I see it here in NYC from time to time, so pretty!
