The flowers of Echeveria are produced on a tall arching stalk, generally in a bell shape. 

There are many blooms opening in sequence, taking several weeks to complete the cycle. 

There will be buds at one end of the stalk, waiting to open, while the older ones are drying out.

Beautiful flowering Echeveria...

The flowers, like all plants, will produce seeds in the right conditions.  Don't discard the flower stalk once it's done flowering; put it into a paper bag and see if you get some viable seeds from it. 

Your propagation career could be waiting.

Once the flowers are done, if you don't want to save seeds from your succulent, cut the stalk off carefully at the base.  Next year, around the same time, your plant will flower again.
