This is the most reliable aloe here for purple.

This one is getting some sun protection so it's greener.

These Dyckias are only honorary succulents but they like the same lifestyle.

OK you got me on my feet and out the door with a camera, here goes some purple, pink and reds. First up is a Kelly Griffin aloe hybrid 'Pink Panther'

Thumb of 2018-03-27/OldBlue/27ced4

another Kelly Griffin aloe, 'Raspberry Ruffles'

Thumb of 2018-03-27/OldBlue/216abe

next is a group of Echeveria 'Afterglow' in a planter

Thumb of 2018-03-27/OldBlue/6fe1fb

Echeveria 'Mt. Etna', all have been beheaded in the last few months

Thumb of 2018-03-27/OldBlue/abdf99

More beheaded Echeveria, these are 'Zorro's'

Thumb of 2018-03-27/OldBlue/cd556c

The last Echeveria is 'Metallica', daddy of the Perle von nurnberg I believe.


Thumb of 2018-03-27/OldBlue/2b4b88

Finally an Aeonium 'Marti Gras'

I think this is a Graptoveria.
Thumb of 2018-03-28/Jai_Ganesha/5cc00c

This is Lithops somethingorother. It is a couple years old and has never grown in the correct way. But it has a very faint reddish purplish tint.
Thumb of 2018-03-28/Jai_Ganesha/dc7b2c

This nodulosa Echeveria has been neglected for ever. It keeps sending up babies, and I really should treat it more kindly.
Thumb of 2018-03-28/Jai_Ganesha/765fbe

A new Jade cutting I got the other day, which has reddish leaves.
Thumb of 2018-03-28/Jai_Ganesha/70df6d

This Sedum was green all winter and has recently started showing pink.
Thumb of 2018-03-28/Jai_Ganesha/8b132f

Not a succulent, but this pepper plant is just breaking dormancy and you can see a little bit of purple in its leaves. It turns purple then solid black in the summer.
Thumb of 2018-03-28/Jai_Ganesha/2c3b7d

Also not a succulent, but this coleus is definitely pinkish purple. I've had it for years and it will not stop growing.
Thumb of 2018-03-28/Jai_Ganesha/96aadb

When I bought this it was labeled Echeveria Perle von Nurnberg. However, I think it is probably a hybrid or a poorly bred Perle von Nurnberg because it's growth habit has always been wonky.
Thumb of 2018-03-28/Jai_Ganesha/bd1750

I stole this Christmas cactus cutting off the floor at Walmart. It should not have made a new bloom without roots, but it did. I'm going to take the bloom off.
Thumb of 2018-03-28/Jai_Ganesha/60f5b3

This coleus standard is a couple years old. Also not a succulent, but I grow it with them because it enjoys lots of light. That chair in my yard would really appreciate it if the movers would come and get it already.
Thumb of 2018-03-28/Jai_Ganesha/87ff03

Lastly, this bird is as pink as pink gets and she lives in my plants because I am trashy.

I forgot these purple sempervivums because they are outside waiting to be planted in my rock garden once I get it started.

Thumb of 2018-03-28/Jai_Ganesha/552817

I got each container for $1 at a tiny little greenhouse run by a man in his 80s. I did not have any cash on me, so he insisted that I just bring him the money whenever I got it. I thought that was kind of crazy so I went to a gas station and got cash and took directly to him.

I told him he should not trust people but then I got to thinking probably nobody will ever go in there with the intent to buy $1 sempervivums on credit and not pay. lol

Oh, I didn't think to include plants from previous years.

My Easter cactus. Its leaves are purple-tinged, too. I like Easter cactus blooms so much better than Christmas/Thanksgiving cactus blooms.
Thumb of 2018-03-31/Jai_Ganesha/e36c07

This Faucaria had very faint purple teeth. I knocked it over and destroyed it, unfortunately. But I currently have a bunch of seedlings, some of which are, in fact, purple-tinged.
Thumb of 2018-03-31/Jai_Ganesha/38b6ab

Ordinary Echeveria flower.
Thumb of 2018-03-31/Jai_Ganesha/878be3

When I first got this Gasteria it had a faint purple tint on some of the leaves, but that has gone and never returned. I wonder why. It's probably light levels but I don't know if it needs more or less...
Thumb of 2018-03-31/Jai_Ganesha/803479

Portulaca are so easy. This bowl looked completely disheveled all year but they grew with colorful abandon and bloomed until frost.
