x Cremneria 'Pulchella'

There's been some considerable discussion about the lineage of this plant. It goes something like: "What is this plant?" Described by Berger in 1904 as E. pulchella, we'll go with Myron Kimnach that it's probably a hybrid with one parent as Echeveria amoena or Cremnophila linguafolia. Whatever its pedigree, its a nice little plant.
We welcomed two new members to the Oregon Cactus & Succulent Society this evening and had a very nice program.
