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.  The information presented on this page is based on research that we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations we have made of it growing in the nursery's garden and in other gardens we have visited, as well how it performs in our nursery crops out in the field. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others as well and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they have knowledge of cultural information that would aid others in growing Echeveria 'Dick's Pink'.
