Blue Rose Hens and Chicks

Echeveria imbricata

Among the most popular of the Echeveria family, this Mexican native forms large rosettes of powdery, blue-green leaves flushed in shades of pale coral and pink. Tall flowering stalks carry nodding, bell-shaped flowers in vibrant yellow and salmon pink, handsomely contrasting against pale foliage. Blooms provide an important source of nectar for pollinators. This succulent will slowly grow to form a colony with offset rosettes.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
