SRL Teamphylloclade width 1.5–2.0 cm., length 3.0–3.5 cm. This is one of the smaller truncatas. 'Eva Marie McKeen' is a full sibling to the large yellow cascading 'Lorraine Leclerc'. Plant is named in memoria of Lee Gordon Goodfellow's wife's mother who was an avid gardener. Eva Marie McKeen is a poor pod parent, but an excellent pollen parent, throwing small-sized plants and some that could be designated as miniatures. The Süpplie Data Directory 2005 has the parentage incorrectly listed as 'Thor Alex' × 'Carole Ann McKeen'.
