Smallish blue--green, somewhat glaucous Echeveria hybrid with many flat leaves. Flowers are small and orange--red with yellow mouths. The color and the degree of glaucousness vary with the season and the exposure. Best color with direct outdoor sun. Each rosette may grow to about 5-6 inches maximum and will form clumps over time, making this an easy plant to propagate. Roots are shallow, so do not use a deep pot. Bred in Australia.
