Echeveria ‘Tarantula’

Echeverias’ neat rosettes brighten up considerably when the plant flowers. Tall scapes carry orange flowers tipped yellow and topped with hairy sepals. The flower is bell shaped with upcurled petal tips.

I presume the hairiness of the blue-green leaves inspired the cultivar name, Echeveria ‘Tarantula’.

    1. So funny that two of you were observing that at the same time. I’ve never had the chance to try it. We have more traditional Bonfire foods than Halloween ones.

  1. I vote for changing its name to Echeveria ‘Candy Corn.’ It’s ever so much more uppealing. (Sorry, but it’s late here and I couldn’t help it.)

        1. I laughed at that one. My sweetheart and I share made-up jokes that we have so far only invented either the question or the answer for. There is a knack to laughing at those.
