This is easily one of my favorite hybrids in my collection.  It's such an interesting pairing, as espinosae is small and compact and xerographica is large with flowing leaves.  This is a cool combo of the two; a small to medium sized plant with thin, semi stiff, semi brittle leaves than gently recurve.  Get your hands on this while it's around because it isn't around often!
