Powder blue or gray Echeveria from Tamaulipas with pink flowers, usually in a double shepherd's crook. Low-growing and relatively compact (rosettes to 6-8 inches) with potential to expand sideways over time. Relatively common in cultivation, but probably less common than the mutant form known as "Topsy Turvy". A prolific late summer bloomer and often a prolific offsetter. Both the species and the variant have been used in hybridization. Extremely tasty to rodents and birds.
