Product Details Highlights
‘Perle von Nurnberg’ (Echeveria gibbiflora ‘Metallica’ × E. elegans) (Graessner): An old, classic hybrid that is well-loved for its pearlescent pink and purple tones that can shade to blue-green. Its leaves have an elegant curve to them and a coating of farina gives them a soft sheen. This cultivar earned the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.
‘Perle von Nurnberg’ can grow to about 6.0″ wide if given plenty of sunlight and great drainage. Pick pots with drainage holes and fill them with a gritty soil like cactus / succulent potting mix. It does need protection from frost but will grow well indoors if kept near a sunny window or under a grow light. Water deeply, but only when the soil is completely dry.
This variety grows easily without much maintenance but it is slow to produce offsets. Fortunately, it propagates readily from stem cuttings and leaves
