Echeveria Perle Von Nurnburg Succulent is a must if you want to cover a lot of ground in your rock garden. The large rosettes can grow to around 6-8 inches across. The thick rounded leaves are bluish-green with a metallic pink sheen. Long stems around 15 inches support the coral colored blooms in the spring or late summer. This plant was bred in the 1930s by Richard Graessner, a famous succulent breeder, who was from Perleberg, Germany. He crossed Echeveria gibbiflora var. metallica and Echeveria potosina to create Echeveria Perle Von Nurnberg.
