This plant is sometimes sold as Echeveria subalpina.

It seems to be remarkably hardy to cold and wet, having survived -7C in a friend's garden in ordinary soil in Cornwall, UK.

Got this plant recently at local nursery... turns out its a common cross- seen it everywhere now for sale. Nice stiff blue-green leaves slightly squared off along edges. This actually ended up being 3 separate plants (see second photo), so not sure if it suckers, but suspect it does. Just planted... will let you know if it survives OK.

Been over a year now and this plant does just as well as most other Echeverias. Blooms in spring- red- flowers look very Echeveria-like
