Description by Dick Wright, 13 Dec 2013:

It is a vigorous F1 hybrid from the wild species  E.rosea grande and a very inbred plant of professor H.M.Butterfield's strain. The leaves are as broad as they are long : 3 to 4 inches = 75 to 100 mm. The rosettes will have between 20 to 30 leaves and will grow to 12 and 18 inches = 30 to 40 cm in diameter. The leaf margins are highly crenate-very curly  with an ever varying shades of pastel pink.   D.W.
