I've had such a hard time figuring out what kind of Echeveria succulent this is! I got it at Home Depot in Seattle last year, it was called "Echeveria sparkle." Sadly I beheaded it while moving cross country, and I couldn't save it. I've been trying to find another, but I've only found one forum where no one believed the sparkles were real!
The closest plants I've found are Echeveria frosty or Echeveria pulvinata, but having seen these in person neither has the same sparkly appearance. Echeveria "Doris Taylor" woolly rose, Echeveria setosa, and Echeveria green velvet are also similar, but all are more hairy. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you so much!
Your plant does look close to E. pulvinata, maybe a hybrid? The hairy Echeverias may vary quite a bit in their hairiness, and presumably hybrids between hairy and non-hairy plants would be intermediate. I am not familiar with a plant called Sparkle and it's not in my 2005 book of Echeveria cultivars. So maybe it's new since then. You might get some useful information out of the flowers, maybe post a picture then? If you're curious about care or something other than the name, I can try to help.
I remember seeing plants similar to this at Home Depot in Pennsylvania. Chances are, it's not a named cultivar and was just a random hybrid. Even most of their named cultivars are not well-bred or well-maintained enough and are better thought of as regular hybrids.
That said, does Home Depot get their plants from Costa Farms? In most of the eastern US, that's where they come from. If so, you might want to see if you can contact them. If anybody would know, it would be them but I don't know how issue it is (or is not) to get in touch with them: http://www.costafarms.com/cont...
