Echeveria 'Neon Breakers' US PP21,406 is a patented succulent developed by Altman Plants. A thriving E. 'Neon Breakers' is nothing short of an electric sight. This show-stopping hybrid forms rosettes to 8" or more in diameter, eventually producing offsets. Rosettes have many leaves that are red-violet-mauve, with very crinkly neon pink margins. 'Neon Breakers' is not only more colorful than its parents, it is far more disease resistant, and does not suffer the "shutdown" from dormancy that some other echeverias suffer. When 'Neon Breakers' flowers, it's almost unfair to the neighboring plants. Its deep pink flowers, complemented by purple sepals, shine from stalks well above the rosette. It can be used as a patio plant where some afternoon shade is provided. Otherwise, give it plenty of bright light to allow the rosette to maintain optimal form. The plant also excels as an attention hog (in the best way possible) in a dish garden or in a garden bed in temperate areas. Propagation prohibited.
