This didn't have an ID tag when I bought it today. Does anyone have any idea what it could be?

Looks like an Echeveria or hybrid, maybe another member of the Mexican Crassulaceae, in that ballpark. The flowers should be informative.

Reminds me of a Sedeveria 'Yellow Humbert' I saw recently.

Very nice flowers! Thumbs up Pretty. The closest Echeveria with that color flowers would be E. pulidonis but the leaves and flowers are a different shape, so maybe it's a hybrid, or it could be a Sedeveria or similar. Out of my range of experience at that point. But that's a lovely followup, Paul. I tip my hat to you.

Identified it! Sedeveria 'Blue Elf' - found a whole row of them at Lowe's from the same grower as the one I bought.
