In April, the colour is dark purple/red colour, the rosettes globular and with a high leaf count. At this time the leaves incurve toward the centre like some Chryanthemum flowers. The young rosettes huddle tightly to their mother.
The colours brighten to reddish in late spring and the rosettes become more open. Grows and multiplies well.
An older variety from one of the UK's earliest breeders. Hardly ever seen now but it still has that 'something different' quality.
