A choice cross by Jim Pearce features good qualities of both parents. These plants vary but are mainly fairly wide leaved, reddish brown to blackish with a dusting of silver trichomes. The marginal spines are large and bold and silvery-white.
This cross makes many offsets and form attractive mounds of plants. Our current offering was selected out of the grex and has purplish foliage covered in metallic silver scurfing with white spines.
