'San Remo' is an attractive cultivar with wide bright yellow striations and edges. It gradually changes to solid green as the leaves age and develops small brown raised spots. It was originally found in a nursery in San Remo, Italy and brought to the U.S.
There is a second cultivar named 'Smoked Sausage.'
