Descriptions (from various sources):
The seed that started the line on 'Red Imp', was labled as longipes (wild collected) . It came from Japan. I used a very nice seedling and crossed with another Japan, sourced seedling I had grown on it. That was pycnophylla "small leaf".
So it was an F2 from the first longipes [RL].
Ovate, pointed, wavy edged leaves.
White backed.
Progeny:
'Holar Red Spear' = 'Maya Kingsnake' x PP
