Echeveria haagai ‘Tolimanensis’
Echeveria haagai ‘Tolimanensis’: Tolimanensis is a trade name for this plant of unknown heritage, but it’s stayed popular in cultivation with good reason. It has a distinctive form for an Echeveria, with fleshier, upright leaves of deep purple to dove grey for a looser rosette look. It offsets freely and can grow quite tall while maintaining full leaf coverage on its stem. This variety grows a tall bloom stalk each summer from which hang numerous orange to yellow bell-shaped flowers. It has a high success rate for propagation from both offsets, leaves, and stem cuttings.
Echeveria need bright sunlight to maintain their colors and compact rosette form. They will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light.
