Description

Echeveria runyonii 'Topsy Turvy', Upside-Down Echevaria, is a mutational form of Echeveria runyonii whose foliage appears upside down with its convex keeled surface pointing upwards. Echeverias are prone to fasciated and monstrose forms and this oddity has a unique charm all of its own. The leaves are powdery blue-green and the rosettes can grow to 30 cm across. Apart from them being upside-down, the leaves ae longer and thinner than the broad patulate-cuneate foliage of the type species and just how different the two plants are can only be fully apreciated when they are seen side by side. The flowers appear in summer through to autumn and the petals are orange on the inside and pinkish on the outside surface. The flowers can sometimes also appear in contorted shapes.

An easy plant to cultivate, Echeveria runyonii 'Topsy Turvy' requires a fertile but very free-draining substrate and does best in full sun. It makes a perfect houseplant.
