    Popular small glaucous blue-green Echeveria with distinctive bright yellow flowers on an unbranched shepherd's crook. Leaf tips and edges are marked with brownish red highlights. From Puebla and Veracruz. Plants originally from Puebla were distributed as ISI 421 in 1963. Hybrids (named and unnamed) may be difficult to distinguish from the species, especially based on flower color. In this category are "Deranosa" (other parent unknown) and "Blue and Yellow" (with E. chihuahuensis "Ruby Blush"), among others.
