Monday Macro: Yet another Echeveria

Echeveria pulvinata 'Frosty'

I thought that I had posted a version of this picture at some point, but a check back through the blog archives suggests not. Echeveria pulvinata 'Frosty' has been a very easy plant to care for, though it has been through a few mishaps, such as falling off shelves and having its soil washed almost completely away during heavy rainstorms. These have left the plant looking not as pretty as it once did. But when looking at each rosette of leaves up close, the contrast between those frosty white "hairs" and the shiny green leaf surface is striking. Click twice for the full effect.

A picture of the whole plant can be seen in this post.

I love this echeveria! Love the fuzzy stuff. Looks like it is in great shape!

I didn't notice until you pointed it out that the leaf itself - under the velvety hairs - is actually shiny! I have to look more closely at my plants.

Fuzzy Wuzzy was also an Echeveria - that's a sweet plant.
