Leaf colour

Colour group:

Red variegated

Upper surface:

The leaf is mainly bright pinkish-red with occasional small stripes of paler red. The outer parts of each leaf are usually striped with bright green and there are occasional darker greyish-brown stripes. The green stripes vary from very narrow to almost half the leaf width. Some leaves are completely red and some have green stripes on one edge only. The actual leaf margins are red.

Lower surface:

There is a very distinct orange midrib but the general colour is greyish-green with dull pinkish-red stripes. The green is much more extensive than on the upper surface.

Comments:

Our plants of this variety are practically indistinguishable from Phormium ‘Jester’.
