Echeveria ‘FO-42'

Sold Out

Sku: 0850664

Echeveria 'FO-42' is part of, in some way, the quite variable setosa complex of echeverias, collected by Mexican naturalist Felipe Otero. It has yet to be formally described, as it has not been established that this is a form of a species, and of which species, and that it is not a hybrid. Who doesn't get love a little mystery? But there's more to this hairy hen than taxonomic uncertainty. Flowers are the distinctive "candy corn" flowers of the Echeveria setosa group -- bright yellow and reddish-orange bicolors. Combine those vibrant flowers with the soft blue color and hairy texture and you have yourself an intriguing winner for a windowsill or patio, or in a rock garden.

Part of what makes succulents so fascinating are the myriad ways they express themselves throughout the year, depending on light, season, temperature, soil, and hydration. For those and other reasons, the plants you receive may not look exactly as they appear on our website.
