The Sunrise succulent aka Anacampseros telephiastrum ‘Variegata.’ Its botanical name may not be so easy to say but the plant itself is very attractive and eye-catching. It is something that will quickly become the centerpiece of your garden if you plant it and take good care of it.
The plant’s leaves look like flowers. Their outer halves are deep pink in color, while their inner halves are lime green. They make the plant to look quite attractive and exotic.

The calico kitten succulent is known in botany as Crassula pellucida ‘Variegata.’ It is called the calico kitten succulent because it has got amazing colors just like calico kittens.

4. Pink Moonstones
Pink Moonstones is better known as Pachyphytum oviferum by botanists. It is one of the most unique pink succulents you will ever se. It is called pink moonstones because its leaves look like smooth and rounded gray stones that have been lightly brushed by a pink paint. They look very unique.

Pink Moonstones are native to Mexico.
5. Pink Butterflies
Pink Butterflies is a Kalanchoe succulent that looks very dramatic (in a good way). It comes with leaves that are green and spotted. The leaves have a bit of pink on them. On the edge of each leaf, this plant products small pink rosettes. These rosettes are pink in color and can easily be confused for pink butterflies. This is the reason why this succulent is known as pink butterflies. It is also the reason why it is referred to as the pink mother of thousands.
6. Echeveria Laui
Native to Mexico, this Echeveria is just about as popular as the Perle Von Nurnberg Echeveria. This is because it forms very pretty pink rosettes using its leaves. Its rosettes are about 5 inches across so they are pretty big.
This Mexican succulent prefers living in dry and well-draining soil. So when getting a planting soil, make sure you get something that drains very well. Moreover, while this Echeveria can be kept indoors as a houseplant, it thrives outdoors in the sun. So plant it in a pot and put it somewhere where it will get the full sun and you will love how well its rosettes will be looking in the morning and the afternoon sun.
7. Pink Granite
Pink Granite Sedeveria is a beautiful succulent featuring a combination of several colors. Its leaves are light pink and its stems are mint green. Its multiple colors make it look like those on a granite floor hence the name Pink Granite.
The thing that stands out about this succulent are its thick and fleshy leaves. They form rosettes that are about six inches across.
This succulent’s rosettes are heavy hence they usually lie down or hang over the edges of the containers they are grown in. For this reason, many florists and gardeners often grow this succulent as a hanging succulent.
The thing I adore the most about this succulent is the fact that it is easy to care for. I also love the fact that it is pet-safe. So if you are looking for a pink flower succulent and you have some furry friends in your household, it is one you should strongly consider.
8. Crassula Ovata
This pink beauty is a close relative of the Calico Kitten succulent. This is because it belongs in the same genus as the Calico kitten succulent. By definition, Crassula ovata is a jade plant subspecies. It has glossy leaves and thick stems like most jade plant varieties.
The thing that stands out the most about this plant are its fragrant star-shaped flowers. They are many, they look terrific, and they smell nice.
In terms of appearance, this succulent often grows 5 feet wide and 5 feet wide. So it is better off in the garden where there is space than indoors. It looks good outside in the full sun. However, it can also grow under the shadow or taller plants or trees.
Crassula ovata requires only minimal watering and it can be easily propagated using stem cuttings or leaves. So if you are looking for a plant that you can easily take care of or propagate, it is one of the few you think of.
9. Sedum Rubrotinctum ‘Aurora’
The leaves of this plant look like jelly beans and this is the reason why it is also known as the jelly bean plant.
The leaves are plump and quite colorful. In fact, they look more like the fruits of the plant rather than the leaves. They are greenish with pink tips and grow on 6-inch long stems. Because of the overall size of this plant, it can be grown as a desk plant or a windowsill plant. It can also be grown outside.
The flowers of this plant are white and yellow and the plant is native to Mexico like many popular succulent plants.
To make this succulent thrive as a houseplant, you will need to plant it in a well-drained soil and to situate where it can get at least some direct sunlight for a couple of hours every day. You must also not overwater it.
10. Aloe ‘Pink Blush’
This is a small hybrid Aloe. It is a close relative of the Aloe vera plant but it looks quite different from it. In my opinion, it is a more attractive ornamental plant than the popular Aloe vera. As for which one is more medical, I do not know.
At maturity, this hybrid Aloe usually measures approximately 5-inches wide and 1-foot tall. And its leaves are often greenish with pink borders. After this succulent matures, it develops short branches featuring orange flowers in winter or spring and these flowers usually stay around for long.
Like most Aloe plants, this one too is very easy to grow and care for. It does not need frequent or regular watering and can survive for several weeks without water. Therefore, if you travel a lot and you want a succulent or a plant that you won’t have to worry about when you are in the opposite end of the country for a business meeting, this is the succulent you should strongly consider.
Two Bonus Pink Flower Succulents
11. Ghost Plant
What comes to your mind when you read or hear the word ghost? Supernatural beings in white sheets? Well, this plant is nothing like that. What I mean is that it is not a ghost. However, its rosettes are light pink and almost invisible and hence the name ghost plant.
In botany, this plant is known as Graptopetalum paragguayense. It is the succulent you should choose if you are looking for a pink succulent that is not too pink.
This tree is native to Oaxaca, Mexico. Its rosette is 6 inches across and, therefore, very visible. This means you can plant this succulent as an outdoor plant by hanging it in your balcony or veranda or simply plant it in your garden.
You will love planting this succulent outside because the more it stays outside the pinkier and more attractive it will get.
If you decide to grow this plant outside, make sure you grow it on a raised bed. This will improve drainage and make sure its roots don’t get waterlogged, which is something that can kill it.
12. Douglas Huth Graptoveria
This plant is a cross between Graptopetalum and Echeveria plants. It has greyish-green leaves with a hint of pink. They form quite attractive rosettes that are about 8 inches across.
And when the plant blooms, it forms very nice pink flowers.
This plant can easily be grown even by newbie gardeners. This is because it can handle a lot of neglect. To make it thrive, you need to only expose it to minimal sunlight and to give it minimal water.
This plant is pet-friendly. In other words, it causes no harm to pets.
As you can see above, there are many pink color succulents you can grow both indoors and outdoors. All the above succulents including the bonus succulents are relatively easy to grow and to care for. They are also relatively easy to propagate. Choose whichever pink succulent your like and use it to start your succulent collection or to add to it. It will brighten up whichever space you locate it.
