Origin unknown.

Parentage possibly Pachyphytum fittkaui x Echeveria spec.


Caulescent plant.

Rosette to 25 cm in diameter.

Leaves up to 13 x 3 cm, pinkish brown to greenish brown.

Inflorescence to 25 cm high, branched.

Flowers pinkish outside, inside yellowish pink.

In Australia the plant is called "Pachyphytum fittkaui"; this is not correct, the flowers clearly show that it is a hybrid of a Pachyphytum (species or hybrid) and an Echeveria (species or hybrid). Whether P. fittkaui is involved cannot be decided. It is now named 'Flambeau' after a torch, especially of thick waxed wicks.
