This little semp averaging 1 to 1-1/2 inches in diameter is very very productive having many off sets (chicks) some on stolons 3 inches long. It is dark green with purple about 1/3rd from the tip down the bract. Depending on soil ph, fertility and moisture it can vary to chartruse to almost yellow with pinkish tips. One of the easiest to grow and affords expermintation for color variances.
