This is both a cross created by Mark Dimmitt and a naturally occurring hybrid.  I have seen varying degrees of influence in this cross, some having softer more lepidote leaves and some having stiffer more glaborous leaves.  The plants available are more like the latter; stiffer leaves meaning more concolor influence
