Echeveria Subrigida, “Fire and Ice”, isn’t the most common echeveria, but one we love greatly. In optimal conditions the plant will grow up to 18” wide and with its soft, deeply canyoned leafs, it offers the same rosette forming quality of aboutique agave with none of the thorns. Soft is the new black. We care so much about our customers and while we loveagaves, we also love protecting your loved ones. Nothing can replace a well placed Agave Americana deep in a landscape, or an Agave ‘Blue Glow’ centered behind a nice carpet of Senecio Mandraliscae, but some areas just require more of a delicate touch. The “Fire and Ice” echeveria grows large enough to use as a focal point in an arrangement, or highlighted amongst its larger tree aloe counterparts. Use it with Graptosedum Rosa to make the fiery red edge pop.
