Year Introduced: N/K
A beautifully variegated form of F. procumbens. Originally known as Argenteus, but modern international taxonomy standards don't allow Latin names for cultivars.
A hardy creeping and trailing plant whose tiny, unusual flowers face upwards and have bright blue pollen. Proportionately large pinkish orange berries.
Like all genuinely variegated plants, needs more sun than its plain form to compensate for the lack of chlorophyll in its leaves.
We find that this (and the plain species), grows better in clay pots than plastic ones.
Tube: Green, yellow and red.
Sepals: Green, short, purple tipped.
Foliage: Light green 193C, edged and blotched grey green 194A/194B and cream. Stems and leaves can deveop a purple cast in sunny conditions. Heart shaped tiny leaves, neat and attractive.
Parentage: Sport of F. procumbens.
