Echeveria ‘Imbricata’ is a very popular vigorous growing succulent. It gets 4 to 8 in. wide with tight rosettes of flat grey-green leaves. When it is mature Echeveria ‘Imbricata’ forms large solid clumps 4 to 6 in. tall. In spring and early summer it produces slightly branched stems that bear clusters of red and yellow flowers. Echeveria ‘Imbricata’ does best when planted in full sun. In hotter inland climates part sun to light shade are more the norm. As with most echeveria ‘Imbricata’ likes well drained soil and only occasional water. Echeveria ‘Imbricata’ is a hybrid created in the early 1870’s. As with some other echeveria ‘Imbricata’ is sometimes called Hens and Chicks because of the way the plant clumps and produces smaller rosettes or ‘chicks’.
