    Fairly old and variable intergeneric hybrid by Louis de Smet (from around 1870) of Pachyphytum bracteosum x Echeveria secunda. Leaves are powder blue to nearly white, and brighter with more sun. Flowers are typical for a Pachyveria and range from orange to pinkish red, sometimes with yellow highlights.

    Various forms of this plant exist and some have been named with variegated or monstrose leaves (eg. "Albocarinata"); different sized rosettes; and flowers that may vary in color (eg. "Mediterraneo"). The form I grow reaches about 6 inches in diameter, offsets profusely, and makes peach colored flowers.

    "Scheideckeri" is delicious to squirrels and birds and needs to be hidden from the animals during our annual summer drought.
