Re: Echeveria gibbiflora 'Metallica'??

Echeveria gibbiflora var. metallica has been described by Lemaire from a plant in cultivation, reputedly imported from Mexico - but with no data at all. "General habit and flowers as  in the type, but the leaves broader, the largest seven to seven and a half inches long by five to five and a half inches broad five-sixths of the way up, much rounded towards the apex, with a faint apiculus, not at all concave, when young a decided purplish lilac edged with glaucous-green, passing into a brownish bronzy green as they fade, the edge not at all crisped."

Because the plant has not been found in Mexico, Kimnach has modified the status from a variety to a cultivar > E. gibbiflora 'Metallica'.

The plants shown here

are different from what you have found.

So the only thing we know for sure is that the description has been made of a cultivated plant of unknown origin.
