Echeveria cante


 This species of echeveria is native to Zacatecas , Mexico 

Until its description in 1997 this species has been in cultivation for decades under the name Echeveria subrigida. In fact E. cante and E. subrigida cannot be confused, the leaves of the former are highly farinose (those of E. subrigida are white-pruinose or also entirely green) and its inflorescence is shorter and more branched.
