Echeveria ‘Giant Blue Curls’ is a drought-tolerant, frost-tender hybrid that originate from the dry conditions of the Mexican desert. It requires well-drained soil, low-water, and plenty of air circulation. The attractive blue-green, fleshy rosettes and vibrant pink, frilly edged foliage look stunning in mixed containers. The pink tones are more pronounced in the cool weather of fall and spring. It is advised to overwinter this plant, bringing it indoors when temperatures begin to dip below 25-30º F.
