Blue Curls Echeveria

Echeveria ‘Blue Curls’ is a plant that an entire design can be built around. The colors, shapes, and overall appearance of this echeveria can influence an entire landscape or arrangement. Green, blue, purple, wavy, rosette forming leaves make this plant a true delight. The rule of three is easily applied when dealing with this echeveria. A design should focus on no more than three colors, three heights, and three textures. The beauty with succulents is the ability to easily accomplish each of these three tasks. ‘Blue Curls’ easily meshes with other greens, blues, and purples. Plant with Sedum Clavatum, a striking low blue ground cover, Aeonium Urbicum, to offer green lily pad like accents, and Aeonium Zwartkop, to offer a little more height and bring out the purples in the ‘Blue Curls’.
