Cryptanthus ‘Alpine Frost’

Out of Stock

A Jim Irvin hybrid introduced in 2002 is the prodigy of Crypt. ‘Cloudcover’ crossed with Crypt. ‘Ocean Mist.’  Owing to its ancestry, this plant has the crisped edges and long graceful leaves fixed in a symmetrical rosette as Crypt. fosterianus.  The one-inch wide dark pink leaves are marked with a cross banding of an undulating flame-stitch pattern of snow-white trichomes.  As the plant matures, it loses its scurfing, darkening to a brown-red as its pink offsets emerge dusted with snow-white trichomes.  The beautiful hybrid matures out to a 6-inch height with a 14-inch diameter.
