ISI 2005-20. Echeveria ‘Ghost Buster’

This new cultivar is another of the notable selections of Robert Grim of San Jose, CA. It is a slow-growing hybrid of E. colorata and E. elegans. It resembles E. elegans with its pale alabaster coloration but is more robust (to 15 cm diameter) by virtue of its E. colorata parentage. The latter may also impart some frost hardiness, as that species has proven hardy to temperatures in the teens. Rooted offsets of HBG 77134, a hybrid made by Grim in 1977. $8.50.
