Echeveria agavoides "Red Tips" has bright green central growth that extends to spiky leaf tips, which terminate in dark red. This E. agavoides is similar to the "Lipstick" variety, but has leaves that are more rounded and less triangular. A larger Echeveria, this variety can grow large rosettes up to 1' in diameter. "Red Tips" blooms in summer with yellow flowers.
Echeveria is a large genus of evergreen succulents in the family Crassulaceae native to Central America. These plants are rosette shaped and some can form shrub-like growth when allowed to grow large. Echeveria need well-draining soil and are prone to damping off if overwatered. Some varieties can handle frost but most can not survive cold, wet winters.
Plants in this genus prefer full sun to partial shade depending on desired coloration - full sun tends to bring out red or pink hues. However, too much direct afternoon sun can burn foliage. Leaves can be waxy or hairy, or even glaucate or farinose. Flowers appear in large inflorescences of bright yellow, orange, or red flowers. Echeveria can generally be propagated from leaf cuttings or offsets, but can also be grown from stem cuttings and seed.
