This is an interesting hybrid because in ehlersiana hybrids, ehlersiana tends to really dominate the physical appearance of the hybrid.  In this case, several features of concolor are present; semi-open rosette, stiff, semi brittle leaves, and multiple long red bracts during bloom.  The plant and bracts are semi-lepidote, leaves are channeled, and it has a semi bublous base like ehlersiana.
