Echeveria harmsii “Plush Plant”
Sold OutSku: 0850065
In cold weather, leaves blush rose-red and look like red velvet. Bright orange flowers are amongst the largest for the genus. Excellent color for holiday wreaths, rock gardens and dish gardens. In habitat, many echeverias grow on rocky outcroppings at higher altitudes. In this habitat, the water drains quickly away from the roots of the plant, never allowing the plant to remain waterlogged. For this reason, it is essential in cultivation to use a very porous soil, which will allow quick drainage. Bright light is required to prevent "stretching" of echeverias ("stretching" occurs when a moderately fast growing plant such as an Echeveria, is grown in dim light or over-fertilized, which causes overly lush growth that contributes to weak, pallid plants).
