Type N, 2" x 10", - Long leaves the margins being somewhat undulate. Ground color green in new leaves which turns to dark red in the older leaves. The leaf is heavily spotted orange crimson and the area about the midrib is more or less heavily suffused with the same color. A somewhat slow grower but one of the most satisfactory of the highly colored varieties for general planting.
