A homemade cultivar hybrid of D. aliciae x sp. Lantau Island, this cross averages around 2-2.5″ in diameter but can reach nearly 4″ across, with mostly flat rosettes of tapered leaves that broaden out slightly more at their tips. Coloration is where it gets its name, typically remaining an olive green in the center but depending on the light flushing from green to solid crimson throughout the rest of the leaf. Flower stalks can be massive, over 2 feet long in some cases and bearing up to 2 dozen or more large, bight pink flowers. Great for a singular display, they do divide on occasion and bud from the roots to form colonies over time.
The second photo is of a plant grown out by another grower, for an example of adult size (pot is at least 3″ across). Available plants are typically between 1.5-2″ in diameter, semi-mature.
