One of the garden centers nearby just started allowing people to go in and shop, so I went in today to look for some Sempervivums to put together a garden outside. They had a display full of Black Prince Echeverias, so I stopped to check them out. I ended up finding this interesting fellow crammed in the back of one of the trays:
I've never come across a black Echie with slightly ruffled leaves like this before. I'm assuming it's some kind of hybrid? Any thoughts on this guy?
A nearby employee did not look impressed AT ALL that I dug out half a shelf of plants in the middle of pandemic restrictions to get a better look at this, but I think it was worth it.
That is indeed a very pretty plant, and I can appreciate the features that drew you in. I am curious if the waviness of the leaves persists or is maybe some weird artefact of its upbringing. The flowers look weird to me, and it's the wrong season for Black Prince to flower, but I would expect them to be red. The final color of the flowers (when they are open) ought to be informative.
