Echeveria agavoides Crested

There are a bunch of E. agavoides cultivars. Our favorite, and everyone elses as well, is what we call “Ebony” but others call “Lipstick”. I refuse to use that ridiculous name.

Anyway, this is not one of those. This is from another cultivar that has only a bit of the red tips. The form quick growing rosettes to about 12″ across.

I think I’ve seen these crested ones around in tiny pots for sale elsewhere, but we’ve grown them a bit bigger here, almost full clumps. They are pretty fast growing for a crest, and not as tight as some others, so it kind of looks like its own species with weird oblong rosettes.
