Echeveria runyonii Rose, Cact. Succ. J. (Los Angeles) 7: 69 1935. ;

Echeveria runyonii is a species of flowering plant in the sedum family, Crassulaceae,[2] that is native to the state of Tamaulipas in Mexico.[3] Several cultivars have been described and cultivated.

Echeveria runyonii forms a rosette 8–10 cm (3.2–4 in) in diameter. Leaves are spatulate-cuneate to oblong-spatulate, truncate to acuminate, and mucronate. They are a glaucous pinkish-white in color and measure 6 – 8 by 2.5 – 4 cm (2.2–3.2 by 1–1.6 in). The single stem reaches 10 cm (4 in) in length or more and a diameter of roughly 1 cm (0.4 in). Inflorescences are 15–20 cm (6–8 in) tall and have 2 – 3 cincinni, conspicuous bracts, and pedicels approximately 4 mm long. The red flowers have ascending-spreading sepals to 11 mm and pentagonal corollas measuring 19 – 20 × 10 mm.[2]
Echeveria peacockii has similar-coloured glaucous leaves, but its leaves are wedge-shaped with mucronulate (pointed) tips.[9]
Several named cultivars exist, including ‘Texas Rose’, ‘Dr. Butterfield’, ‘Lucita’, ‘Tom Allen’, and ‘Topsy Turvy’.
