Mysterious plant

Asked March 29, 2015, 8:07 AM EDT

Hi Plant Expert, My parents bought this plant from some street stall and would like to know the name (yes, they paid quite a lot without knowing what they are buying). I tried to search it online but couldn't find any clue. Any hints will be appreciated. Many thanks in advance. Regards, Rachel

This looks like a succulent of some genus. We think this is either a Kalanchoe thyrsiflora (variety 'Flapjack'?) https://www.google.com/search?q=kalanchoe+thyrsiflora+ruffled+leaf&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source...

Or possibly a Echevaria gibbiflora (Blue Wave) .
New varieties of these plants are coming out all the time and this may be a new variety.
