|Echeveria 'Afterglow' is believed to be a hybrid of Echeveria subrigida, which is a very farinose white rosette Echeveria, quite similar in appearance to Dudleya brittonii. Echeveria 'Afterglow' is a sibling of Echeveria 'Morning Light'. Forms rosettes to 10" or more in diameter, with lovely shades of blue-purple with dense overlay of silvery lavender. Leaf margins are violet. Large orange bell-shaped flowers in winter and summer. A favorite Echeveria for rock gardens and landscapes along the temperate California coasts. 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). Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost.|
