I saw this at a local nursery marked 'succulent'. Any idea of a better ID?

Maybe Echeveria. 'Blue Waves' or a similar cultivar.

Very pretty! It looks like an Echeveria to me also but I have no idea which one. Until you find the cultivar you could add your pictures to the parent plant entry:

I did add them to the parent plant entry. I looked at several pictures on the data base and also on google and saw several very similar but not distinctive enough to make a good ID.

It's difficult with the Echeverias as there are so any cultivars. nodding
