Rock Echevaria or Gila Live-Forever
(Dudleya saxosa ssp. collomiae or Echeveria collomiae)
A rare find anywhere in the U.S., Arizona has listed as this Salvage Restricted. Meaning they encourage cultivating and use in landscape - but only when purchased from a reputable nursery - NOT harvested in the wild. I was lucky to have spotted it on a steep roadside slope while driving up a steep curvey road. As is our habit, we were on a road that doesn't see much traffic, fortunately, and were able to find a pull out so I could photograph this beauty! This is my first time finding one out in the wilds!
