Striking pink, powder-dusted Echeveria hybrid (cante x shaviana, former parent formerly known as subrigida) by Don Worth. Sister seedling to "Morning Star" and "Morning Light". Reaches 12-16 inches under favorable conditions. Can be grown comfortably in an 8 inch pot for life, but will be more resplendent given a container of 10-12 inches. Best color and form with direct sun; a surprising range of colors are possible on one plant. Bright pink flowers in summer to early fall.
