The variegated form of K. 'Hybrida' has beautifully colored leaves variegated in cream or pink and green. The vegetative bulbils along the leaf margins are produced by the cream-colored tissue that lacks chlorophyll, so these fail to root when separated from the parent plant. This form is non-invasive.

Hybrid of K. daigremontiana x K. tubliflora
