Actually a hybrid. Rosettes of pinkish grey leaves with wavy leaf margins. Lots of different forms of this, but the one characteristic that seems constant are the finely wavy, thin leaf edges. Flowers are typically pink and orange and on several very tall peduncles that end in an ornamental curve at the top where the flowers are.
