Superb variegation. See Thalia, it is otherwise identical, but sensitive to overwatering.
Stiffly upright growing, benefits from some attention to pinching out in the early stages.
Tube: Scarlet-orange, slim and tapering.
Sepals: Scarlet-orange with paler tips, held 3/4 down.
Foliage: Grey green leaves have bold impressed purple veins, with irregular cream variegation, particularly around the edges. The cream parts may have a beetroot purple flush, as does the leaf underside.
Parentage: Sport of Thalia.
