Echeveria 'Dick's Pink'

Another Echeveria we finally have enough to list is Echeveria 'Dick's Pink', a cultivar of uncertain origin. In spite of its name, it doesn't appear to be a hybrid by Dick Wright. Leaf color is blue-green when in active growth in spring and summer and is more purple in winter.
The heat has finally hit, with temperatures in the mid 90s F (33-35 C), but it's staying cool at night (about 55F [13C]) And we're getting smoke from fires on the east side of the Cascade mountains (one on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation and one in the Mt. Washington Wilderness). But all of it is minor in comparison to what's happening elsewhere. We'll take it and enjoy it while we have it. In the meantime...
Enjoy your plants!
