Echeveria: Agavoides

Echeveria agavoides is a stemless satiny translucent light green star-shaped rosette which somewhat resembles the form of an Agave.
Echeveria agavoides is a variable plant - some forms have reddish tips and some forms have slightly red to very red margins. One cultivar 'Ebony' has very dark red margins, almost burgundy.
Echeveria agavoides also has a cristate form, with fans of frosty green spikes tipped in red. The flowers appear on the top of stalks that grow from between the leaves. I think mine is soon to flower.
