    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.

    Like the other black Echeverias, its color will be darkest and most intense in very strong light (hours of direct sun) and tend toward a greener tone in protected locations. Also like them, it is susceptible to mealy bugs (which are easy to spot if you look for them against the dark background).
