Echeveria runyonii is a Mexican succulent native to rocky cliffs, discovered in the wild by Yucca Do Nursery in 1990 and named in honor of Dr. Runyon, who brought a Mexican garden specimen into the US in the early 1900s. Echeveria 'Topsy Turvy' is a unique winter-hardy form that makes a 6" tall x 10" wide offsetting rosette of thick silver-blue leaves that are recurved upward and slightly contorted. Echeveria 'Topsy Turvy' was named by former Huntington Gardens director and succulent guru, Myron Kimnack. Dry soils and good drainage in winter are key to survival in cold climates. Our plants of Echeveria 'Topsy Turvy' survived unprotected at 7 degrees F.
