It is a large slow-growing Echeveria forming a flat rosette with a 'rosebud' shape. The leaves are spoon shaped with a fine point, and silvery-grey almost white colour, pearlescent with a particularly blue hue. They may take a delicate blush of lilac or purple in full sun. The pale pink to pale orange or coral red blooms are very showy, and emerge on reddish, arching, relative short stems.
Grow on rocky outcroppings at higher altitudes.
