Spruce-Oliver ‘스프루스-올리버’

Created by / Créée par V. Reiter Jr. (USA)

Parentage / Parenté :  E. quitensis var. sprucei x E. harmsii /   E. 퀴텐시스 var. 스프루세이 x E. 함시

The parentage cannot possibly be correct : Echeveria sprucei is in the synonymy of E. quitensis var. quitensis, that means it has more or less the same size as E. quitensis. A hybrid of E. harmsii x E. quitensis would have a very different leaf shape and much bigger leaves. The plant V. Reiter used for this cross very obviously was misnamed.
