Echeveria etna

Echeveria 'Etna is a spectacular hybrid Echeveria that forms rosettes to 12" in diameter with frosty bluish-violet leaves that have "caruncles" (interesting raised, textured "cameo-like areas on top surfaces of leaves). Hybridized by Denise Manley of Vista, California. Excellent for rock gardens or patio plantings. 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. Echeveria etna Named after the most active and violent volcano in all of europe. Sicily’s Mt. Etna has been active for over a million years and is still erupting today. The word ‘etna’ is derived from the phoenician word meaning “furnace”. They grow to 2’ plus, on a thick solitary stem. Regular beheading is encouraged. Plant in full sun, to part shade, in a well draining soil.
The photo on the right is a mature plant in an 8" pot. This echeveria etna was grown outdoors in 40-50 degree weather with rain and other elements. As you can see the Weather has made the color particularly deep and exciting.
