Cryptanthus ‘Elaine’

Out of Stock

An albo-marginated clone of Cryptanthus fosterianus developed by J. Creech of Cobia Nursery in Winter Garden, Florida taking twelve years to stabilize the margination.  Growing to 18 inches across in an upright medium oval, the leaves are chocolate brown in color with 1/2″ hot pink margins marked with regularly spaced silver bands across the leaves.  Only as the plant reaches maturity does it flatten out and the pink changes to coral in color.  Truly one of the best Cryptanthus to have!
