The Duchess in Flower

With rosettes of purple and grey-green fleshy leaves, and stems of orangey-pink flowers this Echeveria is a bold statement in this vintage styled garden corner.  The succulent produces drama, tension, exuberance, and grandeur - very baroque. 

Echeveria (Echeveria 'Duchess of Nuremberg') is best overwintered in a cold glasshouse, as it will not survive freezing temperatures.  Here in Cornwall, it can survive the winter outside in a protected spot - ideally above 5 degrees C. It is ideal for pots and planters.
