Echeveria pulvinata 'Frosty'

8th June 2006

There are a great many Echeverias in cultivation, and they are handed around freely, so they tend to lose ther names and identities, so it is nice to have one that can be connected directly to a wild location. Coillected by Alfred Lau in 1980 at San Miguel, Maninaltepec, Oaxaca, Mexico. A wonderfully hairy form, made more white by the absence of red pigment in the leaves that darkens the typical form.

Left to its own devices it grows quite long and straggling stems, so it is worth cutting it back and rooting the tips regularly to fatten out the clumps.

Clusters of small flame coloured flowers, the reverse of the usual arrangement with a yellow base colour and orange tips.
