I might as well show these off, I've been waiting for the ones in the garden to catch up but the buds are developing slowly, and the aphids are hungry.

Hello Kada, that one is E. agavoides cv "Lipstick"
the other two are E. lindsayana (top) and E. agavoides "Red Edge" I'm hoping to see the edges of the leaves on that one colour up a bit more over summer.

Laughing Glad to be able to oblige.
It's a bit hard to say how old these are as I haven't had them for very long, but I'd say they are nearly two years from when they would have been taken as cuttings. These grow easily, and don't mind the cooler climate here, many of them even survive outdoors here. In fact I have (among others) a large specimen of "Lipstick" in the garden that has survived our wetter than average winter this year.
It's a pity that some nurseries don't name the succulents they sell... could be that they have some real gems on offer but unless you know what you're looking for, it would be difficult to know.

CP,
I have to agree with Kada - the lipstick var is a nice one - very striking.

Okay Folks, I've taken a couple of pics of the outdoor specimen of Lipstick for comparison...
Here you'll notice that it's big and fat from all the rain we got over winter, but it is not as nicely coloured as the g/h grown ones that have had the benefit of much drier conditions over winter.


Here it is in it's garden habitat you can see it at the bottom right of the photographs.

My garden was only planted out in Feb this year... it'll probably be a forest in a couple of years by the way it's going!
The red one is growing in a 6cm pot, so it's quite small, and it has had very little water in the g/h over winter.
