Echeveria 'Dick's Pink' - A solitary rosette-forming succulent with medium-sized heads to 8 to 10 inches wide on an elongating thick stem with large bluish to purple-grey leaves that have attractively contrasting red frilled leaf margins. Leaf color changes through the season and is more purple in winter and more blue when in active growth in spring and summer. Stout flower stalks rise above the foliage bearing large light red flowers. Plant in full sun in a well-drained soil. This plant is of uncertain origin though looks to have Echeveria shaviana and E. gibbiflora parentage. It is not thought to be associated with legendary Echeveria hybridizer Dick Wright. This plant is relatively fast growing and benefits from being beheaded and re-rooted every 2-3 years. We received our plants of this cultivar from Longview Horticulture.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Echeveria 'Dick's Pink'.
