Re: Echevaria minima (ISI 1014)

I'd enter it in a show before taking it to pieces. It deserves a day on the showbench

Re: In flower today

Yes, really nice Carmenae, I was selling them at the 1983 National, I'd seen them for the first time at C&Js in California in 1982 and imported a batch for the National. You must have been that young girl that spent all her pocket money on one, I remember it well.
