Re: Echeveria NOID

Ooo, that IS a beauty! I believe it is an Echeveria purpusorum cv. (The species has mottling & not so many leaves as yours.) One company was selling them as Echeveria parva, but there is no such thing. You'll find many misnamed plant pix online.

Re: Echeveria NOID

BikerDoc, There is a pink flowering one with leaves (?) like yours, but the leaves may be a bit more silverish, I can't remember. I lived in Sacramento yrs. ago. They aren't as available here in Wash., tho seem to do well. There are probably more colors available also. barb
