As far as I know there is no cultivar name.The colored cottons are only identified by the color of the cotton fibers.
I also have "Gold' cotton.

Thanks, I was hoping there was a varietal name, I know there are registered cultivars. As this is a duplicate entry I'll move your photo to the other entry and list the leaf colour.
