A friend of mine has been able to identify this plant, with the help of Rudolf Schulz and another expert, as Aeonium castello-paivae cv. Suncup. It's a variegated form of Aeonium castello-paivae, and has been erroneously sold in the past under the name of Aeonium cv. Abbey Brook. It's pictured on page 152 of his book, "Aeoniums in Habitat and Cultivation."

Its also currently being distributed by Altman Plants as Aeonium torulosum (not a valid name.)
