Pink Succulents Are Replacing Roses This Valentine's Day

What's better than pink roses?

Um, pink succulents, duh! Succulents are THE plant to have. They're easy to maintain, don't die in a week (looking at you, roses), and come in all sorts of beautiful colors.

One of the most gorgeous shades of succulent has to be pink, though. Because pink is the best color. Obviously. (No, I will not be taking other opinions on this matter. Pink > All other colors.)

I mean, look at this thing.

Try and tell me that plant isn't a total babe! This is a pink Mother of Millions, whose name is pretty self-explanatory, don't you think? Look at all that gorgeous pink. I bet this looks AMAZING fully bloomed!

Maybe you want something that actually looks like a rose!

In that case, Kalanchoe Lavender Scallops might be right for you! I LOVE THESE. Look at the way the leaves scallop like lace! Like all succulents, the Kalanchoe is super low maintenance and happy to be left alone most of the time.

Or perhaps Echeveria is more up your alley.

This succulent is THE iconic succulent. It looks like a proper rose, comes in a variety of colors, and is easy to keep! This rare pink Echeveria is a summer bloomer, and it seeds need to be on top of the soil.

This chubby guy is my fave.

Tiscalatengo Gorge Sedum is one babe of a succulent! The fat leaves have gorgeous pink tips that slowly fade into green. I love how chubby this succulent is! This would be so fun to see grow.

Sedum Versadense has lots to offer.

Quite literally! These cute succulents have lots of leaves to bring you pink goodness all year-round. I can't think of a more fun way to get all the pink for your buck, can you?

Look at this little beauty!

How cute is this? I love that deeper magenta color — it's different from other, paler succulents, but still has that big pop of pink. This is the Anacampseros Sunrise Succulent, apty named for that beautiful fading from the tips to the base.

How about some lavender?

Pink's best friend is lavender, right? Right. The Graptopetalum amethystinum (aka Lavender Pebbles) would look amazing next to some pink succulents. It's a pastel fantasy, baby! Get into it!

And last — but certainly not least — the Echeveria Pinwheel.

This succulent is too adorable for words. That pretty red-pink that fades into the green is my dream color palette, you know? These would look so good next to the lavender pebble succulent!

So, what do you think of pink succulents?

As someone who once hated pink and now owns the majority of her stuff in pink, I'm a HUGE fan. I'm thinking of ordering some seeds to grow my own!

Would you like to receive these instead of roses? Let me know!
