Echeveria ‘Ramillete’ is a compact apple-green hybrid that develops red tips in cool weather, as if they were dipped in candle wax. There's nothing cool (the shivery kind) about the flowers bell-shaped tangerine flowers that hang from profuse racemes. The very tips of the flowers are golden, adding a bright, cheery appearance to the floral bouquet. There's something about this plant and tips, like it wanted to add a little something extra where it could. Or maybe it has something to do with Echeveria ‘Tippy’ being one of its parents. Excellent for dish gardens and in rock gardens.
