Echeveria runyonii 'Topsu Turvy'

Archive entry 24.09.17

1st June 2006

The typical form of the species has perfect ordered rosettes of broad leaves with slightly inward pointing tips. Initially this form looks like it has chaotic growth, or is a monstrose or cristate form, but in fact all that has happened is that the leaves have folded into a 'V' shape along the midrib, which allows them to twist slightly as they expand.
The result looks like chaos, but is rigidly controlled by rules (sounds like local government to me!).
