Hawothia hybrid by Joyce Cocozza I D please

Hi all, I have a very nice plant, but all that,s legible on label is CC. It's such a nice J Cocozza plant, I assume other growers also have it and may be able to ID it, but it may be a long shot too.

Looks like Haworthia retusa 'Grey Ghost'.

Thank you both, "Grey Ghost" very appropriate name too. Would it have a CC number ? Thanks Eric Williams

This variegated cultivar of what we used to call Haworthia magnifica var. acuminata has been around in cultivation for decades and I doubt if Joyce had a hand in it's origin, so any CC number would just be her accession number.

Best wishes,
