Originally aqcuired under the label “Ahipara Gumfields,” this plant matches in size but not in just about all other traits of the New Zealand forms and as such has been removed from that locality label. It develops rosettes that rarely exceed 1.5″ in diameter, with tapering wedge to semi-paddle shaped leaves painted in bright yellow-green and scarlet to solid poppy red. Tall (for the plant’s size) wiry stalks bear several small, self-pollinating bright pink flowers.

Note: the location is what this form was received as, but it is quite different from the “common form” of the same locale that more resembles other NZ varieties. Available plants are typically 0.75-1″ in diameter, semi-mature to mature.

Plants are shipped bare-root wrapped in a moist paper towel, via USPS Priority mail; I typically ship Monday-Wednesday to avoid weekend hold-overs. US shipping only. Many plants are grown in high humidity conditions and may require acclimation, unless otherwise noted. If you are expecting weather that may be detrimental to the plants if shipped, please message me upon making your order! Shipping cost includes heat pack or cold pack/insulation as needed for detrimental weather conditions. If there are issues with the plants upon arrival, please contact me within 48 hours of receipt.
