Ruth Bancroft

Created and named by Bartley Schwarz.

Parentage : Tacitus bellus x Echeveria ‘Pulv-Oliver’ (E. pulvinata x E. harmsii) - a plant from Victor Reiter who had made this crossing himself.

Tacitus bellus obviously is very dominating in this xTaciveria, there are no reminiscences of hairs at all on the rosette leaves.

Interestingly, both hybrids, xT. ‘Ruth Bancroft’ and xT. ‘Victor Reiter’ are flowering in summer, 2 – 3 months later than Tacitus bellus !
