Echeveria ‘Pinky’ is a hybrid of Echeveria shaviana x Echeveria cante, bred by Myron Kimnach in 1961.
This is the perfect example of a hybrid due to its shaviana colouring and frilly leaf shape then forges it with the large cante leaves. It inherits its gorgeous ice-white colouring from Echeveria cante and mixes the blue, purple and pink together to create this whirlpool of bright colours, a uniquely beautiful specimen. This particular hybrid blooms in spring, using the same enormous flowers as Echeveria cante, creating an array of pink-orange star-shaped heads.
Grows quite quickly if given the space, looks perfect among frilly succulents.
