Gardeners' Notes:

In Bothell, WA I grow in greenhouse or along window sill during late fall/winter and outside in the spring and summer. It is one of the hardier echevias I have had experience with so far. We have had a tough winter so far and I lost a fair number of echeverias when the temp dropped to the teens but in the greenhouse (unheated) this echeveria still survived. It has now been moved inside the house in the window sill and it putting forth new green growth.

Dark leaved - plant.. hybrid between E affinis and E shaviana. Newest leaves greenish, but then turn a dark purply coloration... sometimes approaching black in full sun. This is a flattish plant (compare to the other E affinis hybrid, Black Knight, which is a more upright plant, with longer, more tubular leaves). This plant will offset easily with time and make some compact mounds of multiple plants.
