Striking black Echeveria hybrid by Frank Reinelt between E. affinis and E. shaviana (a clone of the former is also called "Black Knight", the latter is also a parent of "Afterglow"). Looks nothing like shaviana. Offsets sparingly. Copious red flowers, often in late summer or fall. May be distinguished from affinis and "Black Knight" based on the shape of the leaves (thinner, more sharply tapering at the tip) and the posture (more spreading and less erect). The flowers and bracts are also much more substantial.
